After one sip, you’ll be flying in the clouds.

Raise your hand if you like colorful island cocktails? The Blue Bird is right up your alley then. I’m not a fan of gin (bad experience in college) so I have never tried this tropical adult beverage. I wonder what the Blue Bird would taste like with some nice smooth rum? Now that would be something I will try.

This cocktail is said to be very refreshing and has a great taste, sort of fruity (but not very sweet). It is a perfect drink for warm weather and it is also quite strong. Sign me up!

Blue Bird Cocktail Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 1/2 oz Blue Curacao
  • 2 Dashes Bitters
  • 1 Maraschino Cherry
  • 1 Twist of Lemon Peel

In a mixing glass half-filled with crushed ice, combine the gin, triple sec, Curacao, and bitters. Stir well. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with the lemon twist and the cherry. Raise glass and toast.

Has anyone tried a Blue Bird? I would love to hear what you think of this colorful cocktail.
