Blue Daydream | Cocktail Party

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.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
