Origin of the name of the cocktail
Before we start let’s take away a big misconception: the name has nothing to do with the movie Blue Lagoon. The blue cocktail is from Jamaica named after a lake with the name: The Blue Lagoon. The lake had a remarkable blue clear colour so they called the drink with a similar colour after the beautiful lake.
De Kuyper Blue Curacao
The famous De Kuyper Blue Curacao liqueur has an intense orange taste and unique blue colour. The blue liqueur is officially made with peels of the Laraha orange. Also called the Curacao orange as it only grows in Curacao (one of the Netherlands Antilles in the Caribbean). Originally the orange liqueur is colorless. To make it more tropical, artificial colors (Brillant blue E117) are added.
When you are in Curacao you can visit countryhouse Chobolobo. This countryhouse is also the distillery of blue curacao. Really worth the effort to visit.
