Instructions

Prepare the Glass:

  • Start by chilling a hurricane glass in the freezer. This will keep your drink cold and refreshing for longer.

Combine the Ingredients:

  • Add 1 oz of blue curacao. This liqueur not only contributes to the cocktail’s vibrant blue color but also adds a sweet, citrusy flavor.

Top with Lemonade:

  • Fill the rest of the glass with lemonade. The lemonade adds a refreshing, tangy sweetness that complements the vodka and blue curacao perfectly.

Add Ice:

  • Fill the glass with ice cubes to keep the cocktail chilled. The ice also helps to blend the flavors as it melts slightly.

Garnish and Serve:

  • Garnish with a cherry on top. The cherry adds a pop of color that contrasts beautifully with the electric blue of the drink.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy.
