The China Blue gets its color like so many blue drinks – from blue curacao. But it gets a very special flavor from the lychee liqueur. The taste of lychee is sweet and slightly flowery. This contrasts beautifully with the tartness of the grapefruit juice and the sweet-tart of the curacao.
The China Blue is a slightly sweet cocktail loaded with fruit juice that’s great for any occasion – even breakfast.
- 4 ounces white grapefruit juice
- 3/4 ounce lychee liqueur
- 1 .25 ounces blue curacao
Fill amost of the way up with ice. Pour in the ingredients and stir gently (you don’t want to “bruise” the alcohol by shaking this one). Garnish with a cherry, or a grapefruit, lemon or lime wedge.
