I love this recipe – it looks lovely and delish, but how can I make it without any alcohol for kids? I have one grandson in particular who is in love with anything the color blue (he’s autistic) so I try to find all kinds of neat things to cook and make for him.
Thanks so much!
Hi J, Since the Blue Curacao is what make this cocktail “blue” I don’t really have a good alternative. Maybe some blue kool aid or Gatorade, sparkling water or sprite and lemonade?
