How to make a Angel's Blues

Serves 1 · Takes 3 minutes

~ Note that the proportion of grenadine is extremely important to the colour - a very little goes a long way. If you overdo it, you'll end up with a much darker purple colour, which will eventually separate into light and dark blue layers after a few minutes (this also happens to be quite a nice effect). ~

FAQ's

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve Angel's Blues to enhance its flavor?

Angel's Blues is best served cold in a wine glass to enhance its flavors and aroma. Chilling the glass before serving can also add an extra refreshing touch, making the cocktail more enjoyable.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute any ingredients in Angel's Blues if I don't have them available?

Yes, if necessary, you can substitute Blue Curaçao with a combination of clear orange-flavored liqueur and a drop of blue food coloring to achieve a similar taste and color. In case whipped cream is unavailable, heavy cream lightly whipped could serve as a substitute, though it may alter the texture slightly.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of Angel's Blues compare to other popular cocktails?

With an alcohol content of 13.75%, Angel's Blues has a relatively low to moderate alcohol compared to many classic cocktails. For perspective, a typical Margarita contains about 20% alcohol by volume, making Angel's Blues a lighter option.

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Is there a reason Angel's Blues should be shaken and not stirred?

Yes, shaking is preferred for Angel's Blues because it combines the creamy ingredient with the other liquids more effectively than stirring. Shaking also helps to chill and dilute the cocktail to a perfect drinking consistency, enhancing its overall texture and taste experience.

FOOD_PAIRINGS

What food would pair well with Angel's Blues?

Angel's Blues, with its sweet and creamy flavor profile, pairs well with light appetizers or desserts. Consider serving it alongside fruit tarts or a slice of cheesecake to complement its fruity and creamy notes.
