Something Blue

For this cocktail from Middle West Spirits in Columbus, Ohio, hospitality manager David Alrbright said he wanted to marry “flavors often associated with shaken, citrus-forward drinks in a much more clarified and aesthetically pleasing way. We drink with our eyes first, and my hope is that at first sight Something Blue elicits visions of clear blue water.” (This cocktail also appeared here in the May/June 2022 issue of CRAFT SPIRITS magazine.)


1 ounce cucumber-infused OYO Vodka 

1 ounce Fino Sherry

1 1/4 ounces White Verjus

1 1/2 ounce mineral water

3/8 ounce simple syrup

1/4 ounce Rothman & Winter Orchard Pear Liqueur 

1/2 tablespoon Giffard Blue Curacao

3 drops of saline solution


Build all ingredients in a cocktail mixer, and strain into a highball over clear ice.
