What is a Blue Balls Shot?
A blue ball shot is a neon blue drink that tastes like a tropical island. It has strong notes of coconut from the coconut rum as well as a strong sweet peach flavor pm the backend. The peach is not overwhelming as it is smoothed out by the citrus flavor of the Blue Curacao and the sweet and sour mix.
The tropical flavor and bright color of this shot make it the perfect fit for fun summer celebrations whether it’s a day at the beach, sitting on your porch on the weekend or a pool party. The name of this shot also lends it to be a fun shot to do at bachelor and bachelorette parties.
