After one sip, you’ll be car surfing down Seven Mile Bridge.

I have several weaknesses. By several I mean dozens (conservative estimate). I have a weakness for Caribbean travel obviously, but also long legged pirate girls, most shiny objects, flip flops, baseball caps, and pretty rum bottles. When it comes to rum cocktails, those weaknesses include the flavors of coconut, banana and the color blue. Yes, I like blue rum drinks. It’s my favorite color, so why not.

Blue Curacao is used to give cocktails that distinctive blue color, but honestly I couldn’t tell you what it even tastes like. I have a bottle in the kitchen but I can’t say I’ve ever really tasted Blue Curacao by itself. (Pause) Okay, I just tasted it solo style for the first time. Umm  yeah, it’s meant to be a mixer. Can’t really describe what it tastes like, blue syrup with a hint of orange maybe. I don’t know, my tastebuds are about as good as my sense smell…no bueno.

So in lieu of this weakness for the color blue, today’s Boat Drink recipe is called the Cruzan Blue Latitude. The cocktail uses the recently taste tested Blue Curacao and of course Cruzan Rum. Once mixed correctly, the drink will have a beautiful blue/green/yellow look to it, like the picture above. Shall we do some mixing?

The Cruzan Blue Latitude Drink Recipe


  • 1 part Cruzan Orange Rum
  • 1 part Blue Curacao
  • 1 part orange juice
  • 1 part lemon-lime soda

Mixing Instructions: Pour Cruzan Orange Rum and Blue Curacao in a tall glass over ice, fill with orange juice and top with lemon-lime soda. Raise glass and toast.

    My weakness has to be Jamaican rum in a cocktail. The bold, flavorful, pungent style stands out in drinks and I can’t get enough of them! Now if only I could get my hands on some Smith and Cross and Blackwell rum…

    Jeremy, I think you just inspired me to sip on some Appleton Estate tonight! I’ve been on the look out for Blackwell rum as well, can’t find it on my side of FL but I’ve heard some stores over in Lauderdale and Miami have it. Rum road trip!

    Let’s just jump a plane to JA and go straight to the source! Good enough excuse for me!
