Our Comment:

Better than the film - not hard! This aquamarine blue cocktail is on the sweet with orange and a hint of lime. The double plus measure of alcohol is camouflaged to the extent that it's almost hidden.

Variant:

Vodka, blue curaçao and lemonade on the rocks.

About:

Created either in the 1960s or more specifically in 1972 by Andy MacElhone (son of Harry) at Harry's New York Bar, Paris, France. It's not only the date when this drink originated that's contested with a simpler, and we suspect later, version of the Blue Lagoon consisting of vodka, blue curaçao and lemonade (or lemon lime soda).
