This beautiful blue martini recipe is an excellent addition to any party and it's very easy to mix up. The cocktail has an intriguing sour tropical fruit flavor and the color is captivating, so it's a vodka martini that is sure to be a hit.

The deep blue sea martini recipe comes from Blue Ice American Vodka. This is a nice potato vodka from Idaho that's smooth and has a clean taste that's perfect for simple martinis. It's a wonderful base for fruits, as you'll find out in this cocktail.

Blue curaçao gives the drink its blue color as well as a sweet orange flavor. The sour mix and pineapple juice add a tart and tropical taste while finishing up the aquamarine look of the martini. It comes together quickly and the taste is refreshing, making it an ideal summertime martini you'll come back to time and again.

  • 2 ounces vodka

Tips

  • When shaken, pineapple juice creates a foam on top of the drink. Some people don't enjoy that—though it does settle after a few minutes—so you can also stir this martini.
  • Sour mix is easy to find alongside other nonalcoholic mixers at liquor stores. You can save money and have more control over the flavor and ingredients by making fresh sour at home. Incredibly easy, it simply requires sugar, water, and lemon and lime juices.

Recipe Variations

  • Substituting another orange liqueur for blue curaçao will lose the martini's color. The viable replacement that will work, however, is Hpnotiq. The pale blue liqueur is flavored with tropical fruits, so while it's not orange, it is a good pairing for this martini's flavor.
  • This is just one of many blue martinis to mix up. For instance, using blue curaçao, you can go dry with the Sapphire martini's gin and dry vermouth, build on that by adding pear vodka for a Daphne martini, or take the sweeter route with peach schnapps in a Sapphire alpine.

How Strong Is a Deep Blue Sea Martini?

The strength of this martini may vary a bit depending on the blue curaçao you choose. As an example, pouring a 60-proof liqueur and 80-proof vodka results in a deep blue sea martini right around 22 percent ABV (44 proof). It won't get much stronger than that and is average for fruity martinis.
