Happy Hour Tuesday!
We’re almost at the end of February, and it feels like it’s been way too long since last time we got the chance to go on a vacation. Turquoise water crashing on the golden sand are still a faded memory (well, unless you happen to live in Miami or in a tropical place where we sure hope we could come visit soon!). While waiting for the Spring to come and turn slowly but pleasantly into Summer we are left with the choice of either jump on the next flight to destination Paradise, or cheer up with a delicious drink that of that blue ocean we left behind has the color and freshness: Enticing Azul Bebida.
Enticing Azul Bebida mixes Rometti Limoncello with Blu Curacao, a liqueur made similarly to Limoncello with the dried peel of the laraha citrus fruit grown in Curacao, an island where Spanish transplanted the Valencia orange which later evolved into the laraha fruit. Regardless of the color, Curacao is very zesty yet bitter. Its blue tint is artificial, achieved by adding the E133 Brilliant Blue colorant in order to give the liqueur a tropical, dreamy appearance.
Enticing Azul Bebida is a very suitable drink for your first barbecues of the season. It will refresh last Summer’s memories and accompany throughout the Spring until it’s time to finally go on vacation again!
1 1/2 oz Rometti Limoncello
1/2 oz Blue Curacao
1/2 Lemon juice
Lemon wedge, garnish
In large wine glass or cocktail glass pour Rometti Limoncello and curacao over ice.
Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon into glass. Add club soda to fill to the top (approx 3 oz). Stir well. Garnish and enjoy! Pura Vida!
