The Aquadisiac, from Beachbum Berry Remixed, is a rare example of a pretty blue cocktail that actually tastes good. It works so well because it’s a simple, well-balanced drink; orange-lemon-orgeat is a classic tart-sweet combination made lovelier with the inclusion of blue curaçao instead of the traditional orange.
The key here is finding a quality blue curaçao – we like the ones made by Giffard and Drillaud, which are very nearly as flavorful as their non-blue counterparts. If you don’t have any of the blue stuff, you can use orange curaçao (or triple sec, or orange shrubb), with a drop or two of blue food dye added.
- 2 parts Aged rum or Light rum
- ½ part Blue curaçao or Orange curaçao or Shrubb or Triple sec
- 1 part Lemon juice
- ½ part Orgeat
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass.
