When it comes to colored food and drinks, blue-colored delicacies just seem a lot more fun than the others.
Even though they are more likely to dye your tongue blue afterwards, this captivating, vibrant color is enough to draw anyone’s attention.
Blue-colored alcohol is particularly fun, as you can make pretty cocktails and shots for special occasions and parties.
Most people know about the more popular concoctions, e.g., the Blue Lagoon, but there are so many other quirky drinks out there that you should try!
In this article, we have compiled a list of 20 stunning, delicious blue-colored cocktails (see also ‘13 Best Smoked Cocktails You Need To Try!‘) that are sure to tickle your taste buds (and look great on your Insta feed).
So, let’s get started!
The Blue Margarita, a colorful twist on one of the most well-known classic cocktails in history, serves as this list’s opening drink.
It was originally created in Mexico in the 1930s and has endured the passing of time, giving rise to countless varieties.
Blue Curaçao, an orange-flavored liqueur, gives the cocktail its vibrant, blue hue, and infuses the margarita with a tangy citrus flavor that blends beautifully with the lime and tequila (see also ‘5 Best Tequila Subscriptions‘).
Popular with students, Gatorade Margarita Cocktails are a great (and relatively cheap) way to enjoy the summer months, and have fun with your friends in the sun.
This recipe is simple to prepare, and you may modify it depending on how much alcohol you want in it. Of course, Blue Gatorade is the main component, while a cup of tequila provides the booze.
A variant of the Sex on the Beach cocktail is called Sex in the Driveway. The striking bright blue hue and the substitution of peach, orange, and lemon-lime flavors are the key differences.
It’s an excellent fruity beverage that isn’t overly sugary, and it is really gorgeous to look at. Don’t forget to take a selfie with this stunning cocktail!
Next, rather than a cocktail, we have a shot. A few years ago, the Blue Jellyfish concept became viral across the internet, and ever since, it has gained popularity in bars all throughout the nation.
There are various color options for the jellyfish shot, but in our opinion, the blue version is by far the most attractive. While not the world’s tastiest shot (see also ‘23 Unique And Fun Jello Shot Flavors‘), it is definitely one of the coolest to look at.
Even though this cocktail doesn’t have an entirely blue tint, it is the blue portion that is, in our opinion, the most striking.
As the name might imply, this cocktail is rainbow-colored; the top layer is blue, while the middle is yellow, and the bottom is red. Each of the colors blend together, creating hints of green and orange, adding to the rainbow effect.
The ability to layer colors in cocktails can be challenging to master, but once you do, you’ll be able to create the most beautiful Rainbow Paradise drinks ever!
Who said tequila-based cocktails had to taste bad? Tequila is shrouded with a blue cloud and made delicious and easier to sip in a Frostbite cocktail.
Although the combination of ingredients may seem a little odd, you should give it a try because it will help you understand the possibilities of tequila in cocktails.
Combined with Blue Curaçao and a white Crème de Cacao liqueur, this creamy cocktail will have you hooked.
Citrus vodka, blue raspberry flavored vodka, and Blue Raspberry Lemonade flavored Kool-Aid are all combined with some ice to produce this vibrant alcoholic slushie!
For the perfect summer flair, don’t forget to decorate this stunning blue cocktail with a lemon wedge and some berries. Be sure to sip it slowly to savor all the fruity flavors (and to avoid a brain freeze).

14. Aqua Pearl
The Aqua Pearl is a wonderful, perfumed tropical treat. Although the blue is much more muted than some other colors on our list, the shade is still very appealing.
It not only adds a luxurious smoothness, enticing aroma, and enigmatic tropical fruit flavor, but it also creates a creamy basis for the blue curaçao to adhere to, giving the drink a gorgeous hue without using too much of it.
15. Blue Dragon
The next drink is a hefty, goblet-sized, blue-and-yellow slush cocktail with mango and orange flavors.

The Chi-Chi is a frozen beverage with a deliciously distinctive tropical flavor, and an incredible ocean blue hue. Filled with flavors of pineapple and coconut, it is similar to a blue Piña Colada with a vodka kick.
