Sweet and dreamy is what this Lemon Drop Mermaid Cocktail is! Get ready to sip yourself to a tropical paradise.
Blue Curacao is one of my favorite cocktail mixers. There are a couple of reasons it is a go to mixer for me.
It adds a pretty color to cocktails. It’s versatile when mixing cocktails. It’s deliciously tasty in this Lemon Drop Mermaid Cocktail.
Plus, it’s in the most popular cocktail here on Mom on the Side, the Blue Caterpillar Cocktail inspired by Alice Through the Looking Glass.
As well as a close second, the White Walker Cocktail inspired by Game of Thrones. The difference in those two cocktail recipes shows Blue Curacao’s versatility well!
It’s time for those two delicious cocktails to move aside because there’s a new blue curacao cocktail to add to the list. The Lemon Drop Cocktail!

How to Make Lemon Drop Mermaid Cocktail
First, if you want to make your own simple syrup, bring 1 Cup of Water to a low boil and add in 1 Cup of Sugar. Remove from heat immediately and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Set simple syrup aside to cool to room temperature and thicken before you use it in the Lemon Drop Mermaid Cocktail.
Now for the delicious part of the cocktail! Start by filling four glasses halfway with crushed ice.
Next, pour ½ oz of Blue Curacao on top of each. Then, slowly layer ½ oz of Midori on top of Blue Curacao and set aside.
In a large shaker filled with ice, add simple syrup, lemon juice, and vodka. Shake until chilled all the way through. Very slowly pour into your glasses to create a layered effect and enjoy right away!
