    • 1 oz lemon juice
    • 1.5 oz. blue curaçao
    • 1 oz. grenadine
    • Splash of simple syrup

Instructions to make the simple syrup:

    1. Take 1/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup of sugar in a sauce pan over medium heat – stir until all the sugar is dissolved.
    2. Take the saucepan off the heat.
    3. Allow the syrup to cool.

Instructions fo make the drink:

    1. Take a tall glass and fill with ice.
    2. Slowly add grenadine.
    3. Next add blue curaçao – slowly — the weight of the liquid is different than the grenadine thus it floats on top.
