Can You Drink Blue Curacao By Itself?

You can drink blue curacao by itself, or straight, as its orange tropical flavors can be delicious on their own. What does blue curacao taste like? It has orange peel flavors and is sweet and slightly bitter. Try this liquor on the rocks for sipping. Avoid drinking high amounts of blue curacao straight because it’s high in sugar compared to other alcohol shots. But you can take shots of it, or as an ingredient in shots like blue kamikaze, which has blue curacao, vodka, and lime juice.

How Much Alcohol is in Blue Curacao?

Blue curacao has a lower alcohol content compared to other alcohols like vodka, gin, rum and whisky. On average, it has a 25% ABV, but the exact amount of alcohol it has varies by brand. Other spirits have about 40% ABV.
