Deep Blue Good-bye

Here is a great Tequila Cocktail I constructed when I ran out of Gin and Limes on a Saturday afternoon. With my bottle of Bols Blue and another of Tequila Blanco, I accepted an invitation to cross over to the wild side, and the Deep Blue Good-bye was born.

Deep Blue Good-bye

1 1/2 oz Tequila Blanco
1/2 oz Bols Blue (Curacao)
Juice from 1/2 Lemon
1 tsp Simple Syrup
Ice (4-5 Large Ice-Cubes)

Lemon-Lime Soda (Sprite or 7-Up)

Fill a long Collins glass with ice
Add the Tequila, Bols Blue, and Lemon Juice
Stir and complete with lemon-lime soda


Note: The Deep Blue Good-by is the first of 21 novels in the Travis McGee series by American author John D. MacDonald. I have always like the Travis McGee novels, and I have always believed that most of the Titles for these novels would make great names for cocktails.
