Friday Cocktail

Blue Dolphin

Have you ever heard of a Blue Dolphin?

I first encountered this drink about five years ago while attending the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Canada.  It was a specialty drink on the menu at The Annex Room restaurant.  As of a year ago, it was still available there.  This mixed drink is not broadly available.  I’ve noticed other recipes on the internet, but not this one.

What you’ll need: vodka, triple sec (or cointreau), and blue curaçao.

How I like it:

Knowing only the ingredients and not the recipe, I came up with these proportions on my own.  Pour equal portions (1 ounce each) into a shaker over cracked ice.  Shake, then strain into a chilled martini glass.  Garnish with a twist of orange peel, or alternatively, a slice of orange.  I favor Grey Goose as my vodka of choice.

Alternatively, I have used peach schnapps in place of the triple sec.  And I generally feel gin and vodka can be interchangeable in a lot of drinks, though I haven’t tried it with this one.  Blue curaçao isn’ t to everyone’s taste, but give it a try with this tropical drink.

And remember, drink responsibly.
