A classic if there ever was one. The Blue Lady, like the Mojito, is one of those timeless and ever-popular cocktails that are received warmly everywhere they are introduced. So famous is this drink which was invented in the late 1920s, that at this time it is spread across the world, easily available at any bar, club, or cocktail-serving restaurant regardless of where you are, and even largely served as a mocktail as even those who do not drink alcohol cannot resist the flavours of this drink.

It is the classic blue cocktail. The Blue Lady will often be among the most popularly ordered drinks at any bar or club. Best served with shaved ice, this extremely refreshing and invigorating cocktail is just what you need if you are after a chilling thirst quenching drink that will also have your mind floating in a nice buzz by the last sip.

This pretty cocktail was derived from the original White Lady cocktail recipe, which is a mix of Crème de Menthe and Curacao. The recipe was switched up by Harry MacElhone, one of the world’s most popular bartenders and cocktail inventers of the early 20th Century, and even today. The drink thus first appeared on the menu of Harry’s New York Bar in Paris in 1929 when he decided to replace the menthe of the White Lady with gin, and ended up creating what is now one of the best-known and best-loved cocktails in the world.

Those who, by some incredibly rare coincidence, have not tried this drink, simply must. It has a very easy recipe and can be made at home in no time. Here is a classic recipe for the Blue Lady cocktail.

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes
  2. Add all the ingredients and shake until the outside of the shaker is frosted

  4. Strain mixture into the chilled Martini glass
  5. Garnish with maraschino cherry before serving
