Blue Train Cocktail Recipe & Tutorial

Have you ever heard of a cocktail that outdates the ingredients it is made from ?

" Blue Train "

History of this cocktail

The Blue Train was invented in 1935 as it appeared in Old Mr.Boston DeLuxe’s Official Bartender’s Guide.

Surprisingly, one of this cocktail’s main ingredients being the Blue Curacao, was not yet invented when this cocktail first appeared.

The other ingredients that we will be using are Gin, Lemon Juice & Triple Sec.

It’s a very beautiful cocktail with a popping blue color.

Here is
how we did it


60 ml ( 2 oz ) Gin
30 ml ( 1 oz ) Triple Sec
10 ml ( 0.33 oz ) Blue Curacao
Half Lemon Squeezed
Crushed Ice

Garnish : Orange Peel

How to do it 
  1. Pour the Gin, Triple Sec, Blue Curacao & Lemon Juice into the Beauty Shaker using the Viny Double Jigger & the Lemon Destroyer
  2. Shake Well !
  3. Fill up the Short Mountains Glass with Crushed ice
  4. Strain the cocktail into the glass using the Sköl Hawthorne Strainer
  5. Garnish with an Orange Peel
  6. Insert your favorite blue matching straw

Skål !

When should you use crushed ice 


There is certainly not a specific answer, since cocktails have a lot of personal preference that go into them. You could go with either regular ice cubes or crushed ice or any cool ice cubes from your favorite molds !

For us, we use crushed ice with most cocktails that have a beautiful bright color as we think it complements their texture and sometimes even their taste.

We would advise you try the Blue Train with crushed ice & you will love it ! As far as how you could make them, there’s plenty of ways ranging from electrical machines, to manual ice crusher machines all the way to cracking them with your bare hands.

What is your favorite way to make crushed ice ?
