What Is A Blue Lagoon Drink?

It is a bright, citrusy, and slightly sweet drink made with lemonade, orange, and blue curacao liqueur (orange flavored). The origins of this drink are a little murky, but it is said a New York bartender in the 1960s invented it. Some are reminded of the blue Caribbean waters, but all I can think of is the Blue Lagoon in Iceland.

3 ingredients and 5 minutes to make these delicious no alcohol Blue Lagoon Mocktails.

Blue Lagoon Mocktail Ingredients

  • Blue Curacao Syrup: This recipe uses a non-alcoholic simple syrup version of the blue Curacao. It is a wonderful sweet orange simple syrup with a pretty blue hue. It is pronounced as cure-ah-SEW if you are wondering.
  • Orange Sparkling Water: For even more delicious orange flavor and fizz without added sugar. You can also use orange mineral water, orange flavored sodas, or even plain tonic water/ club soda.
  • Lemonade: The greatest ingredient (by volume) so make sure it is a good quality lemonade, I use Simply brand. You can also use fresh lemon juice in it’s place.
  • Orange Slices: An optional garnish for your mocktail. You could also use a sprig of mint, lemon slices, or even Swedish fish candies.

Equipment Needed

  • Glasses: I use highball glasses when making layered drinks like this one. You can also use hurricane glasses, martini glasses, or use any drinkware you prefer.
  • Spoon/ Stirrer: These long handled spoons are my favorite.

What Non Alcoholic Spirits Should I Use?

Typically a Blue Lagoon cocktail includes vodka and blue Curacao spirit. I recommend adding 2 ounces Arkay NA Vodka which does a fabulous job at mimicking vodka. I also like to use Strykk Not Vodka.

Ingredients needed. Blue curacao simple syrup, orange sparkling water, lemonade.

How to Make A Blue Lagoon Mocktail in 5 Minutes

This blue mocktail is so easy to make! I guarantee you can stir it together quicker than the commercial break on your favorite TV show. Below is a quick overview, the recipe card below will have complete details.

  1. POUR TOGETHER your blue Curacao syrup and orange sparkling water. Lightly stir the two together.
  2. FILL the glass with ice cubes or crushed ice.
  3. TOP IT OFF with lemonade. Make sure you gently pour it in or you will not get the ombre effect in the pictures.

3 Recipe Tips

  1. CHILL THE INGREDIENTS prior to making so there is no need for added ice and the potential of watering down your Blue Lagoon Mocktail.
  2. CAN’T FIND BLUE CURACAO SYRUP? Make a homemade orange simple syrup or use store-bought and add a few drops of blue food coloring to it.
  3. AMP UP THE LEMON AND ORANGE FLAVORS by adding freshly squeezed lemon juice or orange juice. Orange soda like Orange Crush tastes so good in this too. And if you have any leftover, try this Orange Punch!

Frequently Asked Questions About This Blue Lagoon Mocktail Recipe

What does blue curacao syrup taste like?

It is a slightly bitter and slightly sweet orange flavored syrup. The blue has no taste and comes from the use of food coloring.

Does blue curacao syrup have alcohol in it?

A common misconception is that blue curacao syrup has alcohol in it, but it actually is sugar, water, flavoring, and food coloring. Only blue curacao liqueur contains alcohol.

Can I make this in advance for a party?

It depends on how far in advance because you don’t want the orange sparkling water to lose it’s fizz and carbonation. I recommend making this no more than 2 to 3 hours prior to your party and keep it well refrigerated.

Can I add alcohol and make this a Blue Lagoon Cocktail? 

Of course, a classic blue lagoon has both blue Curacao alcohol (in place of blue Curacao simple syrup) and vodka. Feel free to add a splash or two and make it to suite your taste preferences.

    This tasted delicious! I was testing recipes for a baby shower we’re throwing, and wanted something blue and this was perfect. I used simple syrup and a few drops of natural food coloring and it tasted just as good! Thanks for that tip!

    I make a virgin Blue Hawaiian that my husband always complains is too sweet. This Blue Lagoon has more of an orangy bite which makes him very happy. He and my boys LOVE it!

    Your biggest mocktail fan is back! I loved this Blue Lagoon as much as the mojito mocktail! The blue color was super fun. I did use the nonalcoholic vodka as your suggested, which was perfect. I will have to try your cosmopolitan mocktail next. 🙂
