Alcohol Review: Mr. Stacks Blue Curacao

Spread the love

I feel like when alcohol reviews are done that oftentimes mixers are overlooked. I decided to round out my reviews with a couple that I have not tried. Blue Curacao is used in unnumbered cocktails, and you might think curacaos are all the same but I assure you they are not. I was looking through the store’s inventory and kept seeing the same old curacaos that I’ve seen everywhere. I finally hit the third page of my search and was surprised at all of the brands that produce this liqueur.

I was looking for something that was unfamiliar to me and stumbled onto the Mr. Stacks brand. They produce bar standard flavors like triple sec, curacao, and peppermint. Then I found other lesser-used flavors that sound amazing, such as gingerbread, toasted coconut, maple pecan, and pumpkin spice. While this is considered a value line, I was very impressed with the taste and quality of this blue curacao.

I went ahead and made drinks that don’t just use this as a colorant, or filler. The flavor of a blue curacao is mixed citrus a little heavier on the orange side. It works for almost anything. I decided to make these drinks to name sites with beautiful blue bodies of water.
