So, been a while. I am a bit busy lately what with painting and all, but I have been practicing my mixology quite a bit.
Yes, some of it is sweet. Stop rolling y’all’s collective eyes at me.
Anyway, one drink I featured in the previous incarnation of the blog was made famous in Bangkok, at a place called appropriately enough, Aquatini. It’s a favorite drink of mine, and not too sweet, since no simple syrup is involved.
- 1 part blue curaçao
- 1 part citrus vodka
- splash of sweet and sour mix
Pour all ingredients in an ice-filled shaker. Mix well, and strain into a cocktail glass. Depending on the amount of sweet and sour mix you add, you’ll have a color variation anywhere from sea blue, to sewage green. If you want to avoid the color variation, add ½ part lemon juice and ½ part simple syrup, more or less to taste.
Y’all know I had to bring in simple syrup somehow 😉
