Blue Mountain cocktail is a blend of Rum, Kahlua, Vodka and Orange Juice. This unique cocktail tastes just like an iced coffee.
The Blue Mountain Cocktail has an interesting blend of flavors. Orange Juice and Kahlua would never be a combination I would think to put together. I rolled up my sleeves and mixed up this cocktail. It looked like iced coffee and as it turns out it tastes like it too. I have seen recipes that called for fresh lemon juice but I think the orange juice lended a sweeter not sour taste. For a cocktail named for and created in the Jamaican Blue Mountains (that is famous for their coffee) I am surprised that it doesn’t have coffee as an ingredient.
This cocktail is named for the famous Jamaican Blue Mountains. I already had the Acapulco Cocktail and loved it so I figured I would continue mixing up famous location cocktails. It sounded like a fun theme to drink too. I will be honest, the Blue Mountain Cocktail was good but not one that I could continually drink one after another. I am happy to say I have it crossed off the list.
Which list am I talking about?
For fun I flip through my New York Bartender’s Guide and find a cocktail that I have all the ingredients for. That is how I found this recipe. It is fun because you try new cocktails that you otherwise may have never tried. Plus this book has about 1300 drink recipes. You could try a new drink everyday for 3 1/2 years. Looking back to that month were I only drank Moscow Mules feels like kind of a waste now. Well maybe not. I tried a lot of different Ginger beers to find the perfect one. And of course had a fun time doing it.
