Confession, I love girl drinks. Well, this isn’t much of a confession I think if you really get a dude to really be honest, they’ll agree that girl drinks are pretty damn good. The Blue Ocean is no exception, the first thing you’ll notice with this drink is the vibrant colour, the ocean blue can’t be beat. Your next thought is mostly likely something along the lines of “well, thats a Blue Hawaiian”. While, they are similar, the Blue Hawaiian has Vodka and Curaçao but where the Blue Hawaiian also contains Rum, the Blue Ocean gets its character from grapefruit juice and simple syrup. If you are looking for something a little different and perhaps something tart, then consider the Blue Ocean, the colour alone will put you in a great mood.
Psst, below this recipe, i’ve posted some comedy magic.
