I took this picture with my old cell phone on the first trip my husband and I took together to Disney World in 2010. I had this amazing Blue Glowtini at the Victoria Falls Lounge at Animal Kingdom Lodge. It was such a memorable drink that I tried to replicate it when we got back home when we had some friends over. It was a huge hit… evenly the manly men in the crowd thought it was cool! I think the blue glowing booze must have mesmerized them.
You can still find the Blue Glowtini on the menus of most Disney World resort lounges seven years later. It is a slightly fruity and sweet vodka-based martini that comes with a glow cube – a plastic ice cube with an LED light inside that can be set to several different colors.
Here is the recipe I use to make these drinks at home. If you don’t have a glow cube from a trip to Disney then make a trip there and get one! Or you can buy them here. But it is better to go there! Here is how I make them, which is based off of a recipe from MagicalRecipes.net.
Disney Blue Glowtini
1 shot Skyy Citrus Vodka
1/2 shot Blue Curacao
1/2 shot Peach Schnapps
1 shot Sweet & Sour Mix
1 shot Pineapple Juice
Combine everything in a shaker with ice. Shake well and serve in a martini glass rimmed with sugar, preferably with a glow cube set to blue.
