Feeling blue on this #ThirstyThursday? Now you can sip nearly every shade – from azure and Tiffany to sapphire and turquoise. These eight cobalt cocktails will help chase your blues away.
Oceanaire 2.0 at Oceanaire, Washington, D.C.
Indulge in a taste of the tropics. A heady mixture of white rum, banana syrup, lime juice, and ginger liqueur takes on a Tiffany blue hue thanks to curaçao. It’s garnished with “seaweed,” which is actually slender strands of lime peel. Make a reservation at Oceanaire.
Señorita Margarita at RJ Mexican Cuisine, Dallas, Texas
Hola, señorita! This sassy lady from south of the border boasts two types of rum and blue curaçao (see a trend here?), plus sweet and sour mix. Beware: this turquoise temptress can be deadly if you don’t watch yourself. Make a reservation at RJ Mexican Cuisine.
Blue Armadillo Margarita at H3 Ranch, Fort Worth, Texas
Coconut tequila infused with vanilla beans and freshly cut pineapple is the backbone of this sapphire sipper. The teal tipple is a showstopper, so plan on snapping a shot before you take a sip. When you post it, don’t forget to hashtag it #cocktailporn. Make a reservation at H3 Ranch.
Blue Dream Mimosa, Madison, San Diego, California
Blue-green algae (yes, you read that correctly) adds a cerulean caste to this fetching proposition. The cocktail is filled out with organic lemon juice, alkaline water, Fuji apple juice, and ginger, so it’s practically a health elixir. Champagne is also involved, but we won’t tell your doctor if you don’t. Make a reservation at Madison.
