What Is a Blue Motorcycle Cocktail?

A Blue Motorcycle is a cocktail made with blue curaçao, vodka, and lemon-lime soda. It’s like a Long Island iced tea or this Trash Can Drink Recipe, but it comes with a colorful twist.

Tips & Tricks to Make the Blue Motorcycle Drink

Here are a few tips and tricks for making the perfect Blue Motorcycle recipe:

Use High-quality Ingredients

Using good-quality vodka and blue Curaçao will make a big difference in the flavor of your Blue Motorcycle cocktail.

Adjust the Sweetness to Your Liking

If you prefer a sweeter cocktail, add a grenadine or another sweet liqueur to the mix. Alternatively, if you like a more tart drink, you can reduce the sweet-and-sour mix or add more lemon or lime juice.

Experiment with Different Ratios

Feel free to experiment with the ingredient ratios to get the ideal flavor balance for your taste.

Garnish with a Twist

Adding a twist of lemon or lime to the rim of the glass can add a pop of color and a burst of citrus flavor to your drink.

Serve and Add Ice

The final step is to add ice, serve, and drink responsibly. I hope these tips help you create the perfect Blue Motorcycle cocktail!

What Is Blue Curacao?

Blue curacao (blue-colored) liqueur is made from the dried peel of bitter oranges grown on the island of Curaçao. It is often used as a cocktail ingredient to add a sweet, citrus flavor and a vibrant blue color to drinks.

The liqueur is typically made by infusing the peel of the bitter orange with alcohol and other flavorings, such as spices, vanilla, and sometimes sugar. Moreover, it is usually around 20-40% alcohol by volume (ABV).

Some popular cocktails that include blue curacao as an ingredient include the Blue Lagoon, Blue Motorcycle, Blue Hawaiian, and Blue Margarita.

Additionally, blue curacao is often used in tropical cocktails and mixed drinks, particularly those with a beachy theme. In addition, you may use it to make a wide variety of mocktails and non-alcoholic cocktails.

Variations of the Blue Motorcycle Drink

There are several variations of the Blue Motorcycle cocktail that you can try. Here are a few ideas:

  1. Blue Motorcycle Margarita: Instead of using a sweet-and-sour mix, you can use a combination of lime (lemon) juice and simple syrup to make a margarita version of the Blue Motorcycle cocktail. You can also add a bit of orange liqueur, such as Cointreau, to give it a unique twist.
  2. Blue Motorcycle Punch: If you want to make a larger quantity of the drink, combine all of the ingredients in a punch bowl and serve over ice. Also, you can add sliced fruit, such as lemons or limes, for a fruity touch.
  3. Blue Motorcycle Martini: You can strain the mixture and serve it like a martini if you want to make a more refined version of the cocktail. This way will give it a smoother, more sophisticated flavor. If you prefer gin cocktails, this recipe for the Gibson Cocktail might be a better choice for you!
  4. Blue Motorcycle Shooter: If you want a more intense, shorter version of the beverage, you can mix all the ingredients in a shaker with ice and strain the mixture into shot glasses. This method is an excellent option for a party or a quick pick-me-up.

Remember always to drink responsibly and in moderation, no matter which variation of the Blue Motorcycle drink you choose.
