While FUL® sparkling spirulina drinks are not alcoholic, they can serve as a base for a delicious blue cocktail (that will also be packed with nutrients)! Spirulina is the most nutrient-rich food in the world that delivers many health benefits. It’s abundant in essential vitamins and minerals and has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. FUL® sparkling spirulina drinks are made using natural spirulina extract, which keeps all the nutrients of the algae while leaving its taste and smell behind.
With FUL®, you can enjoy a delicious and nutritious sparkling drink as is or add a bit of your favourite liquor and make a tasty blue cocktail. This is a great choice for people who want to stay healthy and avoid artificial colourings and sweeteners, as, unlike other blue drinks, the blue colour in FUL® beverages is all-natural and derived from phycocyanin - a powerful antioxidant found in spirulina. Plus, FUL® sparkling drinks will be perfect for any non-drinkers at your party who want to try delicious and healthy beverages.
Blue Hawaiian Coolers

Deep Blue Vodka Punch
It’s better to prepare this drink well in advance so that it has time to freeze fully. As you serve it, it’ll melt and create foamy white waves. To make this beverage, start by putting some plastic wrap in a Bundt pan and spraying with nonstick cooking spray. Lay some strawberry fruit roll-ups perpendicular to each other, fill about half of the pan with ice cream and tuck the fruit roll-ups over the ice cream. Put it into the freezer and let it freeze completely. In a punch bowl, mix Hawaiian Punch, Sprite, vodka, and add a gummy shark as a garnish. Add the ice cream with fruit roll-ups just before serving.
This beautiful blue drink is essentially a classic Mimosa, but its mesmerising colour definitely brings this cocktail to a new level. Before making the cocktail, make sure to refrigerate both the Champagne and Blue Curacao. For this drink, you need a slice of lemon, granulated sugar, blue Curaçao, Champagne or Prosecco, and lemonade. You can decorate the glass with a white ribbon if you want as well. All you need to do is rim each champagne flute with a lemon wedge and dip it in sugar, then pour some blue curacao, fill the glass with champagne halfway, and top with lemonade.
Jack Frosties are a blend of vodka, sparkling wine, Blue Curaçao, and lemonade. These cocktails are delicious for a winter party or dinner.

Shark Infested Water
This Shark Week-inspired drink is a creative way to diversify your cocktail dinner menu. For the ice cubes, you’ll need to freeze gummy sharks with some seltzer and blue curacao. For the drink itself, mix seltzer with lemonade, white rum, and blue curacao. Fill the glasses with ice and pour the drink. Garnish with lemon rounds.
Most recipes of the Chi-Chi cocktail don’t include citrus liqueurs, but this one is special (and extra delicious)! Grab some vodka, Blue Curaçao liqueur, cream of coconut, cubed pineapple, vanilla ice cream, and crushed ice, and blend all the ingredients until smooth. Then pour the cocktail into glasses, garnish with a pineapple wedge, and voila!
Blueberry Lemonade Margaritas
While this is technically a purple drink, you can always add a splash of FUL® sparkling spirulina drinks, blue curaçao, or some blueberries. By the way, the leftover blueberry syrup works amazingly for sweetening iced tea!
For the syrup, you need granulated sugar, water, blueberries, and lime. First, dissolve the sugar in water over medium heat, then add blueberries and lime zest and bring to a boil. Then simmer for a few more minutes, strain, and let it cool. For the margarita, you’ll need granulated sugar, kosher salt, tequila, triple sec, lemonade, and ice. Decorate with lemon wedges.

Mojito is a classic drink, but this fun version gives it a colourful blue hue and a hint of orange flavour.

You can also garnish your cocktail with a pineapple wedge, strawberry, and/or lime slices.
Blue Creamsicle Mimosas
This is a new take on the traditional Mimosa recipe that gives the drink a creamy and fluffy texture. First, rim your glasses with lemon and dip them in sugar. Stir together blue curaçao, vanilla vodka, and heavy cream. Pour into the glass and top with champagne, prosecco, or cava.
Blue Monday is a delicious drink that can make your Mondays (or any other day, for that matter) a little easier. This easy cocktail takes a few minutes to make and is a great choice for those in a hurry. All you need to do is shake vodka, triple sec, and Blue Curaçao with ice, pour it into the glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
The perfect choice for citrus lovers, Blue Train contains a double dose of citrus liqueur since it includes both Blue Curaçao and Cointreau. We recommend serving it in a chilled martini glass.
