FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

How do I properly shake the ingredients for Blue Bird 2?

To properly shake the ingredients for Blue Bird 2, start by adding lemon juice, gin, orgeat syrup, and blue curaçao to a shaker filled with ice. Secure the lid or shaker top, then shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds or until the outside of the shaker becomes frosty. This ensures that the ingredients are well mixed, chilled, and slightly diluted, improving the cocktail’s texture and flavor.

INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

Can I use any type of gin for making Blue Bird 2?

Different gins will impart unique flavors to the cocktail, so feel free to experiment with what suits your palate.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve Blue Bird 2?

The best way to serve Blue Bird 2 is in a chilled cocktail glass. Before pouring, you can rim the glass with sugar or salt for an extra flavor dimension.
