Baby Boy Blue Punch

  • Author: dellcove

Description

Need a cocktail recipe for your gender reveal party? Try this “something blue” cocktail recipe: Baby Boy Blue Punch. A little tart, a little sweet, and totally tasty. Easy to make as a champagne punch, but also super simple to make as a mocktail for the moms to be in the crowd. Scale back the champagne and boost the amount of blue curacao (and blue raspberry syrup) if you want to pump up the blue color and fruity flavor.

The thing we like about this pretty little cocktail is that it’s not cloyingly sweet, and it’s perfect for a boy’s baby shower and something fun for guests to enjoy. The sparkling wine gives you a nice fizziness in the Baby Boy Blue Punch, and the lemonade makes a perfect in-between option for summer events, when we’re still months away from the warmth of winter drinks (which are great for chasing off the chill when it’s snowing outside). But it’s also good for a spring gathering, when the cherry blossoms are blooming and we’re longing for something to bright and tasty.

To make this as a mocktail: Swap the champagne out for club soda; replace the vodka and orange liqueur with lemon-lime soda and 1 cup of blueberry juice; and replace the curacao with triple the amount of blue raspberry syrup used (like Torani’s), or as much as you like, to taste. Be sure to serve this mocktail version over ice, to help keep the drink nice and cold.

Also, small tip for getting your Baby Boy Blue Punch to have that sparkling rim sugar with the baby-themed tiny candies (it has a soft pastel yellow sugar base, with pastel-colored candy sprinkles in the shape of tiny ducks, bunnies and eggs): Be sure to use simple syrup to moisten your Baby Boy Blue Punch glass rims – NOT water, as water will just melt the sugar.

Add all liquids into a blender, along with 1 cup of crushed ice. Blend on high until blended to desired consistency, then pour into sugar rimmed glasses and serve.
