A new kind of blue-wave cocktail, based on an experimental cocktail recipe, is about to hit the shelves in Australia.
The cocktail is called Blue Wave and is based on a recipe from a cocktail book published by Sydney’s Cocktail Week magazine in 2009.
Blue Wave, made with an acid-rich rum, blue curacao and grenadine base, is made by using a recipe that has already been widely used in cocktails around the world.
“It’s been popular in a number of countries including the United States, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, France, and Belgium,” CocktailWeek.com editor-in-chief Ben Daley said.
“And it’s a really great cocktail.
It’s not too difficult, it’s got a little bit of complexity, and the taste is good.”
Mr Daley was a Cocktail Weekend member from 2009 to 2013 and he said the cocktail has grown in popularity in recent years.
“In the last few years we’ve been able to find a few places where people have tried it and it’s become very popular,” he said.
The recipe was inspired by a cocktail made by the famous American scientist Arthur Cockcroft.
Mr Daly said Blue Wave would appeal to anyone who enjoys a drink with a bit of a twist.
“If you like a bit more flavour, you might go for something like the Manhattan or a Manhattan with blue curcao,” he explained.
“You can also try something like a Blue Wave with some of the other citrus juices like lime or orange.”
A cocktail book that was published in 2009 by Cocktailweek.com, is now being used to market Blue Wave, which is made with orange curacaos, grenadines and blue curaçao, along with grenadinol and a base of rum, a source told News24.
