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.
