Cinderella Cocktail – Fantasy Inspired Cocktails – Glass Slipper Martini

This Cinderella cocktail is fruity, creamy and a lovely shade of blue that comes from using blue curacao.

The drink is made from vodka mixed with blue curacao, pineapple juice, grapefruit juice and coconut nectar for a delightful drink that is perfect for summer.

Be careful not to drink too many of these glass slipper martinis though, or you might just lose your shoe!

Why use blue in this Cinderella drink?

There is some controversy about the colors at the ball in the original movie. What seems to start out as white turns blue during the ball.

However, there is no dispute that the color blue is a recurring element in both the old Cinderella movie and the recent remake.

From the prince’s blue eyes to the mice’s jackets and Cinderella’s lavish ballgown, we are treated to blue again and again.

That makes this blue drink – called a Cinderella Glass Slipper – the perfect choice for a chick flick movie night or a Galentine’s Day celebration.

The original fantasy inspired version of this drink uses blueberry vodka, whipped cream vodka and cream.

I wanted a fruitier drink that more closely resembles a Cinderella mocktail which is a fruit based drink made with grenadine.

My version of the drink is made by blending vodka with blue curacao, pineapple juice, grapefruit juice and coconut nectar.

Adding cream to the cocktail gives the drink a creamy blue hue reminiscent of the color of Cinderella’s ball gown.

Making a Cinderella cocktail

To make this fantasy inspired drink you’ll need these ingredients:Grapefruit and pineapple juice with blue curacao, vodka, cream and coconut nectar with a martini glass.

  • Vodka
  • Blue curacao
  • Pineapple juice
  • Grapefruit juice
  • Coconut nectar
  • Cream

The Cinderella glass slipper is super easy to make. Just add ice to a cocktail shaker[ and pour in the other ingredients. Give the shaker a vigorous shake until everything is well combined.

Strain into martini glasses and serve.

If you want an extra fancy touch, and a bit of sweetness, you can add some sanding sugar on the glass rim.

I used this technique for my Witches Brew Cocktail and it is a huge hit with my readers.

What is coconut nectar?

Coconut nectar is the delicious syrup that is made from the sap of the flowers of the coconut palm.flower of a coconut palm.

If this sap is dehydrated it turns into coconut sugar, but in a liquid form it is similar to agave syrup or maple syrup. It adds a nice hint of sweetness to the drink.

I like to use it in this drink because it is natural and minimally processed. this makes it a low glycemic product.

Why use a cocktail shaker?

If you love to make cocktails, you will have noted that many recipes call for using a cocktail shaker. Why not just dump everything into a mason jar and give it a shake? Won’t that work?

The main reason to use a cocktail shaker in any drinks is to completely combine all of the drink’s ingredients in order to create a single, beautiful blend of flavor. Any sealed container will do that.

But there is another reason to spring for a real bartenders shaker. Cocktail shakers  get very cold when you shake them since they are made of metal.

This makes the drink colder than one shaken in a normal jar.

This is a great benefit for drinks that aren’t served over ice such as this Cinderella cocktail.Bartender pouring a blue drink over a strainer.

Cocktail shakers also have strainers built into their design which helps to keep the ice that cooled down the drink in the shaker.

Once you have a shaker, you’ll wonder how you made drinks without it!

Pineapple is also a great mixer for all kinds of drinks. See how I used it in my Patron pineapple cocktail.
