Belgian Blue

The Belgian Blue is actually a blue cocktail, so you can probably already guess that it features blue curacao. Where the “Belgian” part of the name comes from, I have no idea.

Belgian Blue drink in champagne saucer

This recipe gives you a choice on one ingredient: either coconut liqueur, which is clear, or coconut milk, which is white. So your choice here will affect the alcohol content and the color of the drink – white will make it opaque and light blue while clear will just leave it the color of blue curacao. But the flavor is really similar either way.

Recipe

  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1/2 ounce coconut liqueur or coconut milk
  • 1/2 ounce blue curacao
  • 7-up

Pour the first three ingredients into a glass. Add the 7-up to taste, and stir. Assuming the 7-up was refrigerated, you don’t need ice.
