Smoky Blue Cocktail
This is a drink that definitely impressed as part of Australian Cocktail Month. It took me back to fruit tingle days in Brisbane at City Rowers Nightclub – but this was waaaay better! It was made at La Costa in Fortitude Valley Brisbane and called Oceano Blu. Refreshing, citrusy, with a very impressive smoke bubble on top – I was very keen to perfect this technique.
This is my version which I call “Smoky Blue”. It has the stunning blue ocean colour from the Blue Curacao with a smoky twist! I don’t have the fancy bubble machine La Costa had, but with some help from Google, I managed to created my very own smoke bubble. The Applewood smoke imparted a really interested play on the bright citrus notes of this cocktail. It transported me to sitting on the beach in front of a fire watching the sun gone down over the Ocean.
The Jasmin Verte brings an incredible floral, sensual and luminous finish to this drink with flavours of Jasmine, Neroli, Patchouli, Yuzu and Iris.
I hope you enjoy!
- Smoking gun with Applewood chips
- Edible bubble liquid
- Go to hairydog.com.au and order all your supplies
- Into a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add all the cocktail ingredients.
- Shake well and double strain into a narrow- top cocktail glass (helps form the bubble easier), you want the cocktail to be about 10mm below the rim of the glass.
- Light your smoking gun with Applewood chips, pinch the hose to stop the flow of smoke, dip the tip into edible bubble liquid and slowly un-pinch the hose over the top of the glass to create a smoke bubble.
- Enjoy quickly before it bursts!
