12 Drinks With Blue Curacao and Rum

0 comments

There’s something about a vibrant blue cocktail that just draws you in and makes you want to take a sip. Blue cocktails are even more popular in the summer. If you’ve been craving a tropical escape in a glass, these 12 delicious drinks with blue curacao and rum are the answer. Get some mini umbrellas and get ready to start mixing!

Does Blue Curaçao and Rum Pair Well Together?

Rum is a type of liquor that can be paired with just about any ingredient if you’re creative enough. White rum, also called light rum, is most commonly used for cocktails. Coconut rum and spiced rum can be used to amp up the flavor too.

Blue Curaçao is an orange liqueur that comes from the laraha citrus fruit. The Blue Curaçao liqueur is not naturally blue.

It’s colored with blue dye to make drinks look more appealing. That might sound silly, but it works!

Turning down a bright blue cocktail that looks like a tropical getaway is almost impossible. The addition of rum compliments the citrus liqueur without overpowering it and makes the cocktail stronger.

Put simply, blue curacao and rum are a match made in heaven!
