The Blue Queen – Drink Recipe

The Blue Queen – Drinking With The Maggots Recipe
from Meg G.

Here’s my recipe for my favorite drink! I created it when I was a bartender MANY years ago in college. I changed it up to use Tahoe Blue and the result is AWESOME. In honor of my favorite cast member, I have named it “The Blue Queen”. Love you Queenie! Hope you enjoy!

  • 3 Ounces Tahoe Blue Vodka
  • 1 Ounce Tuaca
  • 2 Ounces Cranberry Juice
  • Three Lemon Wedges
  • 2 Ounces Sparking Water (Raspberry Bubbly is my favorite to use)
  • Ice

Muddle the lemon wedges in a pint glass with ice. Add vodka, tuaca and cranberry juice. Shake. Top with sparkling water and enjoy!!


Our resident bartender, Kyle, provides his twist on the drink as follows:

This is a vodka based drink so you can mix it up a few different ways.

To make it sweeter, substitute the sparkling water with sprite or during the holidays substitute with cranberry flavored sprite or 7up.

Make a sugar rim  on the outside but with crushed Lemon Heads (dust). Looks great in a martini glass and a lemon rind twisted for flair.

Now instead of the Tuaca you can add blue Curacao- it’s a flavored liqueur that has a similar taste with a bitter orange bite. It also makes the cocktail blue like the name.
