Blue Whaler Martini Drink Recipe
Just this past week a friend of mine called and left me several messages such as "Dude, what's the recipe for that blue drink thing". I returned his call and left him a message for the drink we came to know as the "Blue Whaler" martini.
I'm really not sure of the origins of this drink, but somehow it came to be. I remember a particularly great night out on the town, where I ordered a round of Blue Whaler martinis for everyone I was with - I had to tell the bartender how to make the drinks. What was great though is the drinks became the hit of the club we were at - lots of women came up and asked "what is that you're drinking?". It was quite the conversation starter. Later that night I noticed about half the people in the club had Blue Whaler martinis!
This is meant as a guide...feel free to alter for your personal preference (i.e., if you don't like gin, reduce the amount of gin in the mixture!). The Blue Whaler is meant to be served in a martini glass and should be "shaken" (not stirred)!
- 1/2 part Bombay Sapphire Gin
- 1/2 part Stolichnaya Ohranj Vodka
- Splash of Blue Curacao (mainly for color)
- Slice of Orange
In case you weren't able to tell by the recipe, this is a very strong drink! Drink with care! You don't want to have a "blue vomit" moment due to you thinking this drink is like a margarita. This drink is like a martini. Exercise caution!
