Blue and Tasty

What is both orange and blue?

What looks like Windex, but tastes like a creamsicle with a kick?

Orange Bluetini

I recently came up with this rather tasty concoction, and thought you might enjoy it too.

In a martini shaker, add:

  • 1 part Blue Curacao liqueur
  • 1 part Pinnacle Whipped Vodka
  • Ice

Shake until cold, and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a strip of orange peel, running it around the lip of the glass first to release the oils.

I find the flavor delightful. The Curacao and the orange peel definitely give you a good orange flavor and “nose;” the Pinnacle Whipped adds some creaminess to the mix.

This concoction is best enjoyed with the cheese and crackers of your choice, while watching a sunset by the ocean. I may need to spend a few hours researching exactly which appetizers it goes best with.
