Picasso had a blue period and apparently so do I. Finding a very low prices ice crusher has also awakened a desire for cocktails with crushed ice.
Looking at the suggested cocktails in the brilliant app Total Tiki containing blue curacao, I decided to try a Marlin. An original drink by Clancy Carroll, 2000 it all it says.
I will say, that should I ever make it again, and why not it is a perfectly fine blue cocktail, I will dial the Maraschino down a bit:
3 cl light rum - I used Plantation 3 Stars
3 cl amber rum - I used Plantation Stiggins' Fancy Spiced Rum
1,5 cl fresh lime juice
1,5 cl fresh lemon juice
1.5 cl Maraschino - I used Luxardo
1,5 cl orgeat - I used Giffard
1,5 cl blue curacao - I used homemade
I shook everything with ice and strained it into a glass of crushed ice. Garnished with a homemade cocktail cherry.
