Recipe to make this green cocktail called the Captain Nemo for St. Patty’s day!


1.75 ounces (50 ml) Cointreau
0.75 ounce (20 ml) blue curaçao
1 ounce (30 ml) sweet-and-sour mix
Dash of orange juice
Ice cubes


Place all the ingredients in a shaker and shake well. Strain the drink into a glass with a prepared sugared rim and serve.

*For the sugar rim*

Many drinks taste great with sugar around the rim of the glass. You can use regular sugar, colored sugar, sweetened chocolate powder, or crushed candy such as raspberry or lemon drops. Rub a slice of lime around the rim of a glass and dip it in the sugar. Shake it gently to get rid of any excess sugar.
