Blue Angel

This is a dessert drink that uses cream, blue curacao, and vanilla liqueur with brandy to give a blue-white glow to a cocktail. There's a few problems with it though. First, there's not enough blue curacao to make all that cream look blue. (It really is blue-ish, even if the photo doesn't show it.)

The other problem with the color is that there's a lot of brown liquor in there, which turns the drink a little green-ish. Finally, lemon juice curdles cream. It's a nice touch, but this cocktail would be better made if it was sweetened with coconut cream instead to prevent separation. This drink is pretty bad--just sayin'.
  • 1 oz. brandy (Remy Martin VSOP used)
  • 1/2 oz. blue curacao
  • 1/2 oz. vanilla liqueur (Tuaca used)
  • 1/2 oz. half-and-half
  • dash lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
