Blue Lagoon Drink
Amaretto, Lime, Rum and Blue Curacao
This blue lagoon drink is one of those Italian drinks that although has amaretto - it's not a sweeter drink. That's most likely because rum is the dominant ingredient.
I LOVE the color of this drink! The big key, FOLLOW the recipe ingredients. And definitely use a white/colorless rum. I can palette this drink before dinner. It's not overly sweet unless you substitute Malibu Rum. Many of my amaretto drink recipes are sweeter, and I just can't enjoy them before dinner. So if you want it sweeter - see the substitution section below.
You could probably creative here and there with this recipe. But the main thing to look out for is your creative spirit spiraling out of control and the color of this becomes seaweed green and not blue lagoon. Enjoy!
While you are here the list of the other Italian drinks that I make. They are listed down below. Thanks for stopping by and check out my home page too - Italian dessert recipes.
Enjoy your drink!
Blue Lagoon Drink
* 1 oz white rum ( you can use Malibu)
* 1/2 oz amaretto
* 1/2 oz blue curacao
* 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
* Pour and serve
Why white or clear rum?
Only because a colored rum will get you a gross colored drink. The color of this is gorgeous - so be true to the recipe for the rum
Does it have to be blue curacao?
Pretty much. Don't substitute Gran Marnier!!! Yes, they are similar - one is made from the orange peels -the other is a distilled orange liqueur - BUT it's about the color. The Gran Marnier will totally make this look vomit green.
Want this a little sweeter?
Add some pineapple juice. Or add some orange juice. But drinker beware - adding these will change the color of your blue lagoon.

Memorial Day and Warmer Weather Treats!
It's finally warming up! In my neck of the woods we had SNOW on May 2nd. Now were on to the warm weather sweet treats!
I started celebrating by having a Sangria last night. Sangria is so easy to make - and the trick to making it spectacular is - following the super easy procedure. IF you need a brush up see:

As for Memorial Day Goodies - I bake the LESS sticky stuff if I have to travel. And something that the kids can grab with their fingers as they cruise by the dessert table and run off to their next game. Cookies and brownies work the best for this!
