Pale Blue Eyes

Sometimes I feel so happy
Sometimes I feel so sad
Sometimes I feel so happy
But mostly you just make me mad
Baby, you just make me mad

My friend Lance from My Life on the Rocks reminded me that for a Blue Curacao drink challenge I made another cocktail based on the Blanche.

Pale Blue Eyes

2 oz Plymouth Gin
1/4 oz Blue Curacao
1/4 oz Anisette
Dash Orange Bitters

Stir to chill, strain into cocktail glass and garnish with long orange peel.

As it is blue, I named it after one of my favorite Velvet Underground songs.

Thought of you as my mountain top
Thought of you as my peak
I thought of you as everything
I’ve had, but couldnt keep
I’ve had, but couldnt keep

To be honest, the drink would probably be better with Brizard Orange Curacao, but then I’d have to think up a new name.

Linger on your pale blue eyes

  1. Well, I don’t know if I would go so far as to specifically purchase Blue Curacao for the cocktail. I’d just get a decent orange or uncolored curacao and put on the CD. On the other hand, most Blue Curacao are pretty cheap. Plus, then you can make all those blue tiki drinks and the many blue cocktails from Difford’s Guide.
