Blue Daydream

Blue Daydream tripical cocktail with spiced rum, cognac, blue curaçao, orange juice, lemon juice, falernum, oleo saccharum, and Angostura bitters

The Blue Daydream is admittedly more green than blue, but it’s striking both in presentation and flavor. It’s the creation of Sean Paddock at The Oliver in Kansas City, where it’s served with the brunch menu.

The star ingredient here isn’t a spirit – it’s the citrus-packed magic of oleo saccharum. Paddock’s recipe calls for orange-peel oleo saccharum, but we’ve had great success with our standard house blend of lemon and orange peels.

If you don’t have blue curaçao on hand, you can use orange curaçao (or triple sec, or orange shrubb), with a drop or two of blue food dye added.

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
