Electric Blue Butterfly Cocktail & Mocktail
This electric blue butterfly cocktail, inspired by Alice Through the Looking Glass, is a refreshing blend of lemonade, vodka, blue curacao and 7-Up – YUM!
I have always been a big fan of Alice in Wonderland, and when I was younger, I actually acted on stage in a run of Alice’s Adventures Through the Looking Glass (I played one of the Jabberwock’s “Jabber-Babes” haha!). I can’t wait to take my big boys to see the new Alice Through the Looking Glass movie that’s coming out tomorrow, and they’re DYING to see it, too! This electric blue butterfly cocktail and mocktail recipe was inspired by one of my favorite characters from the Alice stories, the blue caterpillar (turned butterfly!).
- 1 1/2 oz. Vodka (preferably lemon or citrus)
- 1 oz. Blue Curacao
- 3 oz. Lemonade
- 7-Up (to fill glass)
- Fill a highball glass half full of ice.
- Add 1 1/2 oz. vodka, 1 oz. blue curacao, 3 oz. lemonade, and enough 7-Up to fill the glass.
- Stir gently to mix, and serve immediately.
This drink is also delicious as a non-alcoholic mocktail! Mix 3 oz. of lemonade with 5 oz. of 7-up over ice, and add a dash of blue fruit punch (or neon blue food coloring). Yum!
