Imagine sipping on a vibrant blue drink that conjures up visions of crystal-clear waters and sun-kissed beaches. The Blue Lagoon Mocktail combines a few simple ingredients to create a refreshing concoction that’s a great alternative for those days where we want to opt for a cocktail without the boozy side effects. Even as a cocktail lover, there are times when I simply want a satisfying beverage that has all the excitement and appeal of a spirit-forward libation but none of the alcohol. As I’m sure you can tell, that was the true inspiration behind the Blue Lagoon Mocktail.
I can’t wait for you all to try this tasty drink for yourselves, so let’s get into it!
The foundation of this drink is the exotic Blue Curacao syrup. It’s like a tropical breeze in liquid form, adding a bright blue hue to the beverage. Not only does it bring an eye-catching element to the party, but it also infuses the drink with a hint of citrusy sweetness. When making mocktails, it’s crucial to mix up drinks that have an enhanced flavor to enjoy with each sip.
To balance out the sweetness from both Blue Curacao and simple syrups, we introduce fresh lemon juice into the mix. The zesty tang of the lemon juice adds a delightful burst of tartness that complements the sweetness within the mixture.
And what’s a mocktail without some fizz? We crown our Blue Lagoon with a generous splash of club soda. As the tiny bubbles mingle with the vibrant blue potion, they add a lively effervescence to the drink. It’s like experiencing a mini explosion of refreshment with every sip!
I had a bit of fun with the garnish. Since the Blue Lagoon Mocktail is such a gorgeous libation, the garnish really had to meet its standards. A skewer garnish is always a simple go-to. For this, I just wrapped some citrus twists around the skewer and added some maraschino cherries for a pop of color!
