Dead Parrot Colada

aquavit Jan 18, 2021

It was the name, and the colour. Both intrigued us enough to make this intense blue cocktail. While it will likely not actually kill a parrot, it would certainly make it dizzy. With both gin and akvavit in the mix, this is a potent one.⁠

It's kind of a Pina Colada riff, where lighter coconut water replaces heavy coconut cream. It's definitely to our liking, and the lightness combined with its freezing features make this a most enjoyable exotic drink.
