There is something about blue drinks that just scream the 90s and intense hangovers. But also careless fun, void of any liquid snobbery. And one of the most iconic blue coloured drinks of the era was a mix of vodka, triple sec, sour mix and 7-up/sprite that went under numerous names – blue lagoon, electric lemonade, isbjørn(Danish). We had to make our own version!! Ours had a few more funky additions aside from the aquavit which makes the drink more complex as well as drier.

1 bottle of Six Nordics Naked hygge
