Blue Island Ice Tea, A Tropical Twist On A Traditional Powerhouse

After one sip, you’ll be face down in the sand.

When I see someone drinking a blue cocktail I immediately think they’re on vacation and ready to have a good time. You just don’t see pissed off people sucking down bright blue drinks, it screws with the universe.

I can honestly say I don’t remember the last blue colored cocktail I’ve had. Don’t get me wrong, I like my fair share of foofoo rum drinks, but I usually gravitate to the rum punches, painkillers and Mai Tais.

Today’s Boat Drink cocktail recipe is no slouch though, it may be a brightly colored foofoo drink, but it will have you face down in the sand if you throw them back with reckless abandon.

Say hello to the Blue Island Ice Tea. It’s a twist on the famous Long Island Ice Tea. I’m sure most of us have had an experience or two with the liquor fueled Long Island version, this is just the island recipe. Add a little Blue Curacao, swap the white tequila for triple sec and bam, you have yourself the Blue Island Ice Tea. Enjoy!

Blue Island Ice Tea Cocktail Recipe

  • 1/2 oz. vodka
  • 1/2 oz. white rum
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec
  • 1/2 oz. gin
  • 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
  • 3 count sweet & sour mix
  • 1 count cola

Mixing Instructions: In a tall or pint glass add the liquors first, then the Blue Curacao, the sweet & sour and finally the splash of cola. Garnish with lemon and orange. Raise glass and toast.

Cheers to hump day and cheers to the Blue Island Ice Tea!
