Blue Lagoon Non Alcoholic Drink recipe. Enjoy this Blue Curacao Mocktail or Blue Curacao Lemonade on a hot summer day to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
I had a chance to sip this exotic looking blue colored Hawaiian mocktail few years ago and I was hooked on to that eye appealing color and the flavor of that drink.
That was the first time I heard of curacao liqueur or syrup and after that I read up on it as I wanted to know more about it.
Curacao syrup is basically an orange flavored syrup made using the peels of laraha fruit which happens to be a variant of Valencia Oranges.
So its like drinking an orange juice which is blue in color. This curacao syrup is used to make many exotic looking cocktail and mocktails.
Traditionally the butterfly pea flowers also known as Blue Bells in India was used to color the liquer blue.
But now artificial colors are being used to dye the drink. Not only just blue but it is now available in all sorts of colors and even flavored curacao syrups are also available.
I have tried the chocolate flavored curacao syrup and the combination of chocolate, sweet, bitter and pungent was really delicious.
There are both alcoholic and non alcoholic syrups available and the one that I’m using is a sweetened non alcoholic blue curacao syrup.
This syrup is available in most of the high end departmental stores now a days. I was able to get hold of a bottle recently and we have all gone through most of the bottle already.
I feel proud that as a family we have stuck to the pact that we took at the beginning of this year to avoid aerated, bottled drinks that are sky high in sugar content.
