Also, big thanks to my cocktail connoisseur friend Jeremy who helped with these recipes! You’re the best!

Fallen Bubble Cocktail

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz Blue curaçao liqueur
  • 1 oz Gin
  • 1 oz Simple syrup
  • 2-3 drops Orange bitters
  • 3 oz Club soda
  • Edible glitter or luster dust (for an iridescent, whimsical effect)

Instructions:

  1. Fill a punchbowl (or giant glass) with ice cubes.
  2. Add the blue curaçao, gin, simple syrup and orange bitters. Stir well.
  3. Slowly pour in the club soda. The bubbles from the soda will create “puffy clouds” floating in the drink.
  4. Garnish with the edible glitter or luster dust sprinkled over the top and swirl with a spoon to see the bubbles swirl and fall.
  5. Optionally, you can rim the drinking glasses with sugar by rubbing a lemon wedge on the rim and then dipping in sugar. This will enhance the sweet and tart flavors.

The bright blue color comes from the curaçao, which also provides a sweet orange flavor. The gin and orange bitters add a tart, citrusy kick while the simple syrup balances the sweetness. The club soda gives it a light, effervescent quality with the whimsical clouds. The edible glitter provides an magical, iridescent finish!

Mocktail Version

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz Blue fruit juice (like blueberry or blue raspberry)
  • 2 oz Ginger ale 
  • 1 oz Grenadine syrup (for color and sweetness)
  • 2-3 drops Orange flower water (for a citrus aroma) 
  • 3 oz Club soda 
  • Edible glitter (as garnish)

Instructions:

  1. Fill a large punchbowl glass with ice cubes. 
  2. Add the blue fruit juice, ginger ale, grenadine syrup and orange flower water. Stir well.
  3. Slowly pour in the club soda. The bubbles will create puffy cloud-like effects in the drink.
  4. Garnish with the edible glitter or luster dust sprinkled over the top and swirl with a spoon to see the bubbles swirl and fall.
  5. Optionally, you can rim the drinking glasses with sugar by rubbing a lemon wedge on the rim and then dipping in sugar. This will enhance the sweet and tart flavors.

The blue fruit juice provides color and a sweet berry flavor without the alcohol. The ginger ale adds a sparkling, refreshing tartness. The grenadine enhances the color and sweetness while the orange flower water contributes a subtle citrus aroma. The club soda gives it a light, effervescent quality and creates the puffy cloud effect. The edible glitter garnish provides festive flair!
