Learn everything on which Vodka to choose


At 2 oz, vodka provides a strong but neutral alcoholic base that allows other flavors to shine. Too little, and you miss the kick; too much, and it overpowers the sweetness.

Blue Curaçao

1 oz of blue curaçao gives the drink its signature blue hue and sweet, citrus taste. Without it, you'd lose the tropical vibe. A splash more, though, could make it too sweet or artificially tasting.

Pineapple Juice

Measuring in at 3 oz, the pineapple juice offers a tangy and refreshing tropical undertone. Less juice would diminish the fruitiness; more could make the drink overly thick and sweet.

Sweet and Sour Mix

1 oz adds the perfect balance between sweetness and acidity, elevating the cocktail's depth. Skipping it would leave the drink unbalanced, while too much could lead to a pucker-worthy tartness.

Mary Mitkina


A 1 cup ensures your Blue Sea Martini is perfectly chilled and dilutes the mix slightly for smooth drinking. No ice equals a warm and strong potion; too much dilutes the magic too quickly.

A pineapple wedge or cherry adds to the visual and aromatic appeal. They're optional, but why skip on the pretty?

Alternate spirits like rum or tequila could take you on a different kind of tropical detour, while swapping blue curaçao for triple sec plus a dash of blue food coloring could keep the color but change the taste.
