Blue Curacao Mocktail / Blue Curacao Sparkling Mocktail / Non Alcoholic Blue Curacao Drink


I am new to this drink. I first tasted this in a mall here. I had it with hot chicken strips burgers, vegetable nuggets, french fries. I was really blown away with this. It tasted amazing with those hot foods. I immediately got inspired by this drink, i asked them what did they used for the colour. Is it food colouring or something else. They told it was blue curacao syrup.



I have never heard about this before though it was readily available in the supermarket shelves.I think, I have never paid attention to them. Immediately i went to the supermaket and got a bottle of that. The next day i made this yummy drink. I posted the pic on facebook and many of you asked for the recipe. So i made it again and took pics for you. Seeing my love for this syrup, next day hubby got me a bottle of pink granadine syrup. How sweet is he! I made a pink sparkling lemonade with that, will post that soon.



Preparation Time : 10 mins
Serves - 1 

Ingredients:

Curacao Bleu Syrup - 1 to 2 tblspn (I used Monin)
Icecubes as needed
Simple Syrup - 2 to 3 tblspn or as needed (Recipe below)
Club Soda Water - as needed
Mint Leaves - few sprigs
Lemon Wedges - few


For Simple Syrup:
Sugar - 1 cup
Water - 2 cup

Method:

Start by making Simple Syrup. Take sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil and mix till sugar is dissolved. Simmer for 5 mins. Switch off the flame and allow it to cool down. Store this in a clean sterlized bottle and keep in fridge till you need it.

Now make the mocktail. Take a serving glass, fill it half way with ice. 

Add in curacao syrup, simple syrup, soda water, mint leaves and lemon wedges.

  8. I don’t usually comment but this recipe looks amazing, so I thought I should let you know. It reminded me of a juice i make regularly at home – pomegranate juice with mint and lime. I use chilled KDD harvest’s pomegranate juice, and pretty much follow the your procedure of putting in ice, mint and lime. It is refreshing and tasty at the same time. Any idea where I can find the blue syrup? And also, which is the other pink drink next to it? looks interesting. Thanks :P
