Dead Parrot Colada

It was the name, and the colour. Both intrigued us enough to make this intense blue cocktail. While it will likely not actually kill a parrot, it would certainly make it dizzy. With both gin and akvavit in the mix, this is a potent one.⁠

It’s kind of a Pina Colada riff, where lighter coconut water replaces heavy coconut cream. It’s definitely to our liking, and the lightness combined with its freezing features make this a most enjoyable exotic drink.
