Summers are exhausting, not just for the body but for the mind too. All it takes for the body to feel out of energy is an hour spent in the scorching heat outside the comfort of home. Summers arrive with a lot of confusion about what to eat and there are days when all you crave for is something cool and fulfilling to drink.

Here’s the method to prepare an instant Blue Lagoon Mocktail that’s personally my favorite during the hot summer season. It can be your go-to drink when you’re running out of time or when guests arrive at a short notice. It is prepared using Blue Curacao Syrup as its main ingredient.
Preparation time: 3-5 minutes (barely)
1 tbsp Blue Curacao Syrup
½ tsp lemon juice
1 small scoop vanilla ice-cream
A bottle of Sprite/7-Up or a similar soft drink
1/8 inch thick slice of lemon
- Take a 250 ml glass and pour blue curacao syrup in it. A tablespoon of it should suffice as Curacao syrup is condensed enough to give you a good taste with that quantity.
- Add lemon juice into the glass.
- Gently drop a scoop of vanilla ice-cream into the glass.
- Slowly pour Sprite/7-Up into the glass and fill it up to the brim. A thick layer of foam would form making it visually appealing.
Decoration: Take a 1/8 inch thick slice of lemon. Cut a radial slit going from the middle through to its peel and slide it gently on to the rim of the glass.
Blue Lagoon is ready to drink or be served to guests.
