This is the first time that I have made this recipe but the third time that I have tasted it. I have always heard a saying that a woman’s favourite drink, apart from champagne, is vodka. Is that true?? For this reason, I am suggesting this drink to you, with its pretty colour and its fairy-tale name. You will impress your friends with this tasty, elegant and quick cocktail. Cheers!!
Ingredients for 1 person
4 cl vodka
3 cl blue curacao
2 cl lemon juice
To prepare the “Blue Lagoon” recipe use a cocktail shaker.
Squeeze the juice of half a lemon into the shaker with the other ingredients and ice.
Shake and then filter into a glass, preferably a glass champagne saucer.
To make it fresh and light, fill the glass previously with crushed ice cubes.
Decorate with a long lime zest (or a cherry in syrup on a stick).
History of the Blue Lagoon
Created in 1960 by Andy MacElhone at Harry’s Bar in Paris. Andy MacElhone is none other than the son of Harry, the founder of Harry’s Bar and inventor of the White Lady cocktail. At the time of the appearance of blue curacao liqueurs on the market, he wanted to honour his father by making a variant of the White Lady, so he replaced the triple sec with blue curacao and replaced the gin with vodka.
