Flying Blue Dragon

The blue-curaçao hue of the Na’vi people in the 2010 Oscar-nominated film Avatar may look a little frightening, as does this cocktail at first glance. But a few sips and the spiced Velvet Falernum will give you enough courage to travel by dragon.

What to buy: If you can’t find Velvet Falernum, a clove- and lime-infused liqueur, try making your own. We think this recipe is a great stand-in.

This Flying Blue Dragon recipe was featured as part of our Best Picture Cocktails story.

Instructions

  1. 1Fill a shaker halfway with ice and add all remaining ingredients except the orange twist. Shake vigorously for about 20 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass over ice. Garnish with an orange twist if desired.
