Blue Mojito


A vibrant blue version of the classic mojito cocktail. The color comes from blue curaçao, which also adds a bit of orange flavor.

A tall glass is filled with pebbles of ice and a bright blue mojito garnished with a wedge of lime and fresh mint.

Immerse yourself in a tropical paradise wherever you are while sipping a blue mojito.

This catchy and refreshing drink combines the freshness of mint, the acidity of lime and the subtle sweetness of blue curaçao.

With its striking azure hue and delicious flavors, it is the perfect companion for hot summer days on the beach or during a barbecue in the garden.

If you’re looking for more blue cocktails to make, I highly recommend trying an Irish Trash or a great layered Quarantiki cocktail.

  • Rum – Mojitos call for light rum. You can substitute coconut or pineapple flavored rum for an even more tropical flavor.
  • simple syrup – You can use homemade (1:1 water to sugar) or store-bought simple syrup.
  • Lime juice – Be sure to use freshly squeezed lime juice. The bottle contains preservatives that negatively alter the flavor.
  • blue curacao – This orange flavored liqueur gives the drink its blue color.
  • mint – Fresh mint is essential to any mojito.

How to do

  1. Add the simple syrup and mint to the bottom of a highball glass.
  2. Get confused together.
  3. Add gin, blue curaçao and lime juice.
  4. Stir.
  5. Add ice and top with club soda.
  6. Garnish.

  1. Hit the mint. Before adding the mint garnish, place it in the palm of one hand and slap it with the other. This expresses the oils and makes them more fragrant.
  2. No draft? No problem! Use the end of the handle of a wooden spoon instead. Be sure to buy a pestle for next time.
  3. Don’t confuse too much. You want to tangle and gently twist the mint to release the essential oils. Aggressive and excessive jamming releases chlorophyll which adds unwanted flavor.
  4. Use the right ice cream. Mojitos are usually served with crushed ice, which you can make with a Lewis bag. Pebble ice is a good substitute (I use a countertop pebble ice maker).
