Blue Martini

Blue Martini
Matthew Kelly / Supercall

Sometimes you just want to drink something blue. In those times, opt not for a Blue Raspberry Slurpee, but instead for this twist on a classic Martini made with vodka, blue curaçao and lightly bitter Cocchi Americano in place of the usual dry vermouth. A few dashes of orange bitters round everything out, bringing out the curaçao’s sweet, citrusy notes. It’s the perfect “up” drink for any luau or your next Fourth of July BBQ.
