A fun, yummy and thirst-quenching drink. Can be served with a slice of lemon as garnish, or blue colored ice-cubes as I have.

Ingredients
1 cup
water
1/2 cup
sugar
blue curacao, as needed
(or a blue food colour)
1/4 cup
lemon juice, freshly squeezed
7-Up drink
Instructions 

First, make a simple lemon syrup. Mix 1 cup water with half cup sugar and a pinch of salt, boil until it simmers and the sugar is all dissolved, then turn off and let this syrup cool completely.

Add blue colouring, preferably non-alcoholic blue curacao and quarter cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Mix together and adjust until the colour is to your satisfaction.

Now add equal amounts of this prepared blue lemon syrup and 7 up. Add ice-cubes or lemon slices and serve chilled! Enjoy! :)

I colored the water I used for the ice-cubes blue to give a more vivid appearance, also used heart shaped ice cube molds for a cuter look

Do they sell non alcoholic blue curacao in Tesco or Sainsbury?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Not sure sorry, you can check. Otherwise use 7 up with blue food colouring.

I made this with green food colour as my blue food colour bottle didn't open up.
Tasted great. Thumbs up. Thanks as always.
