To shake the Blue Devil cocktail properly, first, fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Pour the gin, lemon juice, and blue curaçao into the shaker. Secure the lid tightly and shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds. This will chill the cocktail and mix the ingredients thoroughly, giving it a slightly frothy top when poured into the glass.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of a Blue Devil compare to that of a standard cocktail?

The alcohol content of a Blue Devil is approximately 27%, which is slightly higher than many standard cocktails that typically range between 15% and 25%. This makes the Blue Devil a relatively stronger choice among cocktails.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve a Blue Devil for optimal enjoyment?

The best way to serve a Blue Devil is in a chilled cocktail glass. Optionally, you can rim the glass with sugar or salt to add an extra layer of flavor. Serve immediately after shaking with ice to ensure it's cold and refreshing.
