Tips

With all of the Vodkas on the market, I use Stoli, Absolut, Ketel One, or Grey Goose to make cocktails. Use good quality spirits. The better the ingredients, the better your cocktail will taste.

While in Curacao, we visited the Distillery known for producing the iconic blue liqueur the island is known for: Blue Curacao. The rounded shape of the bottle represents the Valencia orange, and the neck represents its stem. Apparently, if you buy Curacao liqueur and the bottle is in a different shape, it is not a genuine article! Unfortunately, it’s not easy to find ‘the original’.

Bar Tools

Here are awesome products to help YOU make the most incredible drinks. Impress your family and friends and be the BEST Cocktail Barista in your neighborhood.

Need a great Cocktail Shaker but don’t know which one to buy? Look no further.

Martini or cocktail, a good shake makes all the difference in the world so buying a cocktail shaker can seriously step up your at-home drink game. Think about it: no more settling for boring mixed drinks when you can whip up bar-quality cocktails in your kitchen. It’s not just about the fancy presentation (although that’s a fun bonus) but also about how it makes mixing drinks easier and more fun. 

I have at least a dozen shakers, but one favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak; you won’t have to hit the shaker against the sink to get the top off, and the cap will measure from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces with clearly marked labels. Measure the perfect amount every time. And it is dishwasher safe!

Plus, once you get the hang of shaking, you’ll feel like a total pro, impressing your friends and yourself with your newfound bartending skills. So why not add a little shake, shake, shake to your life and upgrade your happy hour?

Another handy bar tool is the citrus juicer. Unless you free pour and don’t measure, this citrus juicer makes measuring citrus juices like limes and lemons, a breeze. Measure the perfect amount every time.

How to Make a Blue Island Iced Tea

Combine the Vodka, Rum, Gin, Blue Curacao, simple syrup, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker half full of ice.

Shake well for 15-20 seconds until the mixture is cold.

Pour the strained contents of the shaker into a glass of ice. I’m using Waterford Highball glasses, but these acrylic glasses are great if you’re headed out by the pool.

Garnish with a slice of lime.
