It's a simple drink with just three ingredients, and built for fun — so what you put into it needs to be better than great.

Drinks don't get much simpler than the Blue Lagoon cocktail, and given the year we've had? That's not a bad thing.
It's a long drink best drunk by the pool — nay, at the swim-up bar in the pool of an island resort — with a festive attitude. The difference with this recipe, as opposed to the countless specs out there on the internet, is that this recipe uses a proper, flavoursome blue curaçao.
Because there are just three elements to the drink — vodka, lemonade, and blue curaçao — it's important that you're not using a cloying, low intensity blue liqueur. And because the Marionette Blue Curaçao employs three types of citrus: seville oranges, navel oranges, and mandarins, sourced from a Mildura grower who they know well, there's layers of flavour in their liqueur — all delivered at a higher 28 percent ABV.
- 30ml Marionette Blue Curaçao
- 30ml vodka
- 90ml lemonade
- Build over ice in a tall glass and garnish with a lemon wedge.
