Sippin’ a Blue Moon Cocktail Under the Orange Summer Sun

DSC_0207

Summer is winding down, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying a delicious summer cocktail! A few months ago Brady’s uncle made me a Blue Moon cocktail (not to be confused with everyone’s favorite Belgian white beer) and I instantly was crazy about it. I decided to try it out for myself yesterday, and I must admit, it was just as delicious as I remembered it!

Most cocktails I find too sickening sweet. However, the Blue Moon tastes like a refreshing blue Creamsicle. It is extremely simple and friggin’ delicious…which can also be dangerous. Its color is as blue as the pool you’ll be wanting to dive into after sipping one! Pretty girly of a drink though, so grab your girlfriends and a blender (am I writing the lyrics to a new Jimmy Buffett song??) and give the Blue Moon a shot yourself!

Blue Moon Cocktail
1 cup crushed ice

¼ cup vodka
¼ cup blue curacao 
¼ cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons vanilla flavored syrup
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon Cointreau (or another orange-flavored liqueur)

Blue Moon
Throw all the ingredients in the blender and viola! It’s as creamy as ice cream. I used an orange liqueur called “Gran-Gala” that worked just as well. Another tweak- I used the whipped cream flavored vodka for more flavor. Impress your buds, sit back and enjoy your last weeks of summer with a cocktail that will certainly take you back to your childhood Creamsicle days (only now with an adult twist). Enjoy, and be sure to post a picture of your concoction on my Facebook page!
