The Blue Lagoon Mocktail is a non-alcoholic version of the popular Blue Lagoon cocktail, which was created in the 1960s by bartender Andy MacElhone at Harry's New York Bar in Paris. The mocktail version is perfect for those who want to enjoy the refreshing taste and vibrant color of the original cocktail without the alcohol. It's a popular choice for summer parties, poolside gatherings, and tropical-themed events.

  • The Blue Lagoon Mocktail is often served in a highball glass or a hurricane glass, filled with crushed ice.
  • It's a favorite among both adults and children, making it a versatile choice for various occasions.

How Blue Lagoon Mocktail Tastes?

The Blue Lagoon Mocktail has a refreshing, sweet, and slightly tangy taste. The combination of lemonade, blue curaçao syrup, and lime juice creates a perfect balance of flavors, making it a light and enjoyable drink.

Interesting facts about Blue Lagoon Mocktail

  • The vibrant blue color of the Blue Lagoon Mocktail comes from the blue curaçao syrup, which is a non-alcoholic version of the blue curaçao liqueur.
  • The original Blue Lagoon cocktail was made with vodka, blue curaçao liqueur, and lemonade.
  • The mocktail version of the Blue Lagoon is sometimes called the 'Virgin Blue Lagoon' or 'Blue Lagoon Lemonade'.



The backbone of any mocktail is its base; in this case, the lemonade provides both sweetness and tartness, setting the tone for the Blue Lagoon Mocktail. Using 150ml offers a balance without being overwhelmingly sweet or sour. If one dares to tip the scales, they might find themselves in a sour situation or lost in sweetness.

Blue Curaçao Syrup

No alcohol here, just the vibrant blue hue and a hint of exotic citrus from the blue curaçao syrup that gives this mocktail its iconic color and depth. At 30ml, it's like adding the perfect splash of color to a canvas without turning it into a kindergarten art project. Swap it with a different syrup, and you might as well call it a 'Lagoon of Another Color'.

Fresh Lime Juice

It's the zesty zing of 15ml fresh lime juice that cuts through sweetness like a pirate's cutlass, offering a freshness that bottled lime juice can only envy from afar. Neglect this fresh twist, and ye be left with a drink as flat as a becalmed sea. Want a change in course? Try lemon juice for a more mellow citrus breeze.

Ice isn't just to keep things chill; it's a vital crew member in this drink's voyage, ensuring the mocktail is refreshingly cool. Underestimating this element could leave you with a drink as warm as the Caribbean sun!

Maraschino Cherry

A maraschino cherry perches atop the ice like a jewel from a treasure chest, offering a sweet nibble that complements the tartness of the drink. It's the final garnish that says, 'Aye, your voyage to flavor town is complete.' Without it, the presentation lacks that pop of color and surprise sweetness.

Lemon Wheel

And what's a drink without a fancy wheel? The lemon wheel serves as an aromatic invitation and a bright visual element. Omit at your own peril, for a mocktail without a garnish is like a ship without a flag!
