Bluebird of Happiness

SAM_0771 Bluebird of HappinessBluebird of Happiness

1 1/2 oz  Vodka
3/4 oz  Bols Blue (Triple Sec)
3/4 oz  lemon juice
3 dashes (about 1/8 oz)  Luxardo Maraschino
ice
soda (splash)

Add the first four Ingredients into a cocktail Shaker with ice
Shake until the sides frost
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
Add a splash of Soda
Garnish with a lemon slice
Enjoy

(Note: The original Bluebird cocktail is credited to W.J. Tarling.  My more modern version is similar, although I suggest Blue Curacao is a better choice than Tarling’s Cointreau and blue food colouring, and of course I like to add a splash of soda that Tarling did not. )
