Enjoy this vibrant summer cocktail while dreaming of tropical islands and far off places (or while you are at previously mentioned locations). Only three ingredients, this Blue Whale Cocktail is quick and easy to get your weekend started…
What is your favorite Friday night cocktail?
I love trying new things and exploring new liqueurs and flavors after a long week. Sadly, I am more prone to order one of these sweet rum filled creations instead of the hundreds of craft beers that we have access to all of the time.
The benefit is when mixed right, one of these Blue Whale cocktails or other fun drinks are hands down delicious. The downside… when they aren’t mixed well… they are just… let’s be honest, sugary and gross.
Which is why we can come home and mix these cocktails on our own. And create a little happy hour magic of our own.

These Blue Whale cocktails are perfect for Friday night porch sitting or chilling around the pool all afternoon. (Obvs, if you’re over 21 – otherwise, just drop some blue food dye in some 7UP for the wee littles).
Grab a glass and let’s escape somewhere until Monday.
