With summer on the way, it's the perfect time to learn how to make a Blue Bayou. The Blue Bayou takes a refreshing glass of lemonade and kicks it up to the next level. It's a light blend of vodka and lemonade that is sweet, tart and delectable. Because the Blue Bayou is made up of really simple flavors, its good to experiment with different flavors. Trade the plain vodka for raspberry, lime, grapefruit or tangerine vodka. Let loose and go wild with different vodka flavors and go crazy with your Blue Bayou.
Things you will need to make a Blue Bayou:
- Blue Curacao
- Yellow lemonade
- Highball glass
- Put a few ice cubes into a highball glass. If you don't have a highball glass, use any tall glasses that you have available. A tall glass makes it easier to mix your Blue Bayou—not to mention a bigger glass means you get more booze.
Pour 1 oz. of Blue Curacao over the ice. The Blue Curacao will add a bit of sweetness to your Blue Bayou and give the drink its color.
Pour 1 oz. of vodka in with Blue Curacao. Now we're getting to the good stuff, if you want a stronger Blue Bayou, experiment with different amounts of vodka. If you want to give your Blue Bayou a bit of a twist, try using a flavored vodka. Raspberry vodka will give your Blue Bayou an extra kick of flavor without interfering with the lemonade.
Add 6 oz of yellow lemonade. Yellow lemonade will make your Blue Bayou tart and sweet without interfering with the color of the color of the Blue Caracao.
Mix your Blue Bayou. Use a cocktail stirrer or a spoon to mix all of the ingredients together. Sit back and enjoy a cool refreshing summertime cocktail.
