While lounging at Morada Bay Café this past weekend, I came across a gorgeously tropical blue drink - the Blue Ocean.
Made with blue curacao, vodka and grapefruit juice, it's an easy-drinking, slightly sweet/tart, bright Caribbean blue cocktail. Don't you think it would make the perfect signature drink for a wedding in the Florida Keys (or anywhere, really)? Here's the recipe:
1 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. blue curacao
1/3 oz. grapefruit juice
1-2 splashes simple syrup
Add all ingredients to a shaker filled with ice; shake,
then strain and serve either straight up in a martini glass
or over ice. Garnish with an orange slice & tropical flower.
We thought our drink needed a pretty little sign to go with it. So we typed it up, added a blue wave icon, and printed it on a crisp white card stock; it's mounted here onto a grass-cloth paper, but it would also look amazing in a white, bamboo or wood frame.
Want it for your own event? We wrapped it up into a download* for you - there are two versions here, one with the icon and one without. Just print 'em out and cut to the size you need.
Hope you enjoy!
