Fun Variations of the Blue Lagoon Cocktail

Put a spin on our Blue Lagoon cocktail recipe with a few twists:

  • Swap out Skyy Vodka with one of their fun infusions. For a more citrusy sip, try the grapefruit. Want a tropical vibe? Try the pineapple.
  • Need to tone down the sweetness? A good squeeze of fresh lime adds a zesty tang or pour it with half lemonade, half club soda.
  • If you’re more of a gin fan, the botanicals of Bickens Gin will make a delicious twist.

What is Blue Curaçao liqueur?

Originally made by Dutch settlers in the Caribbean in the 19th century, Blue Curaçao falls under the orange liqueur category. Basically, it’s a type of triple sec. It is bright blue and flavored with the dried peels of the Lahara citrus that grows on the idyllic Caribbean Island of Curaçao. A little sweet and a little zesty, it’s used in an array of cocktails like our Blue Marg or the Blue Martini.

History of the Blue Lagoon Cocktail

Blue Curaçao was the “bee’s knees” in the 60s thanks to its psychedelic color. It’s said that it was invented at Harry’s Bar in the 70s, so not the creative handiwork of Mr Harry MacElhone, himself. Already famous for inventing the Bellini, the Sidecar and the White Lady, it was only a matter of time before this famed establishment began to dabble with Blue Curaçao. Allegedly, the cocktail is named after Iceland’s world-famous thermal resort.

A Blue Lagoon cocktail is a refreshing drink that’s zingy, sweet and delicious.

That all depends on who you’re speaking to! First and foremost, it’s a tasty cocktail. It’s also a geothermal spa on the Reykjanes Peninsula in Iceland. The baths’ mineral-rich, milky aquamarine waters are said to be healing. Lastly, and controversially, it’s the title of an 80s movie about two cousins, marooned on a tropical island… we’ll leave it there.
