What Does Blue Curacao Taste Like?

Blue Curacao is actually an orange liqueur with a slightly bitter finish. It’s not as sweet as other orange liqueurs because it’s made from the Laraha orange. The Laraha orange is a bitter fruit and for the most part, inedible.

Blue Curacao is actually made from the rinds from this bitter orange along with a variety of spices, sugar and alcohol.

The blue color comes from food coloring. It was added as a marketing tactic to sell more bottles and more drinks at the bar. It’s a great liqueur without the color, but it’s so much more fun when you’re sipping on a blue drink!

How to Make an Electric Smurf Drink

Step 1: Fill a cocktail glass with ice.

Step 2: Add one shot of Malibu Coconut Rum.

Step 3: Add 2 ounces of Pineapple Juice

Step 4: Add approximately 1 ounce of Blue Curacao (a little less than a full shot).

Step 5: Top with 2 ounces of Lemon-Lime Soda.

You can use Sprite or 7-up, whichever is your favorite.

This drink is already sweet from the pineapple juice. I find 7-up to be less sweet than Sprite, so I prefer 7-up for this cocktail.

Step 6: Add Garnish.

A slice of pineapple or orange along with a few Maraschino cherries.

And I think every blue drink should come with a brightly colored drink umbrella!

Electric Smurf Drink Variations

This is a drink you can play with the ingredients to match your tastes. Add a little more or a little less of any of the ingredients to make your taste buds happy. Here are a few Electric Smurf variations you might want to try:

  • Replace 1.5 ounces of pineapple juice with Pineapple Rum. It’ll make for an extra boozy cocktail.
  • Use Sprite instead of 7-up for a slightly sweeter drink.
  • If you want the blue color but prefer a less bitter finish of the Blue Curacao, add an ounce of orange juice. It helps smooth out the bitter finish of Blue Curacao.

 

This colorful drink will brighten up your summer and keep you cool. Enjoy the Electric Smurf drink!
