A Long Island Iced Tea with a blue twist, the Blue Motorcycle is an extremely popular cocktail around the world, particularly in the United States. The Blue Curacao replaces the Triple Sec of a Long Island Iced Tea, while the Coke is replaced by Sprite. However, either way the drinks have an orange flavour and are equally delicious.
The Blue Motorcycle is a cheaper way to get that buzz because you don’t need much of this drink to get that kick you’re after. It is one of those cocktails that most will fall in love with and enjoy time and again, whether at the bar or at home, whether alone or with friends. Sporting an extremely fun and adventurous persona, this drink announces itself just from its exciting name and blue hues that it is perfect for a good time.
The Blue Motorcycle cocktail is also renowned for its delicious taste, which prompts many to have far more than a single serving, particularly because the night seems to gets more fun each time you have another one of these. If you want to party like a rock star and leave all your worries behind, this is the cocktail for you. Always served chilled, this cocktail has a refreshing and invigorating nature as well. As with all cocktails of this nature, this one is easy to whip up, uses humble, easy to find ingredients, and is ideal for when you want to prepare a pitcher of drink beforehand for a party.
