The Blue Skies cocktail is a British recipe, so when it calls for lemonade, it’s referring to a carbonated beverage. Lemonade in the US is flat, so to my fellow Americans, I recommend adding some club soda to your flat lemonade to get the same effect. Of course you can just use flat lemonade, but I think this one is a lot more fun with bubbles.
This is a gorgeous drink that looks exactly like blue skies. The flavor is simply lemon and orange. It’s great to cool off with on a hot day – perfect for the poolside.
- 1 ounce cointreau
- 1 ounce blue curacao
- Fizzy lemonade (or lemonade with club soda)
Pour the cointreau into a cocktail glass, followed by the blue curacao. Fill it up the rest of the way with lemonade, and garnish it with a slice of orange.
