Angelo Azzurro

The Angelo Azzurro, which translates to "Blue Angel" in English, is a sophisticated Italian cocktail that combines gin, blue curacao and tripe sec. Traditionally served in a martini glass with a lemon peel, it is as enjoyable to look at as it is to drink. Cin cin!

Servings: 1


  • 3 oz Gin
  • 1 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 1/2 oz Blue Curacao
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 peel lemon (for garnish)


  • Add ice to a cocktail shaker.
  • Add the blue curacao, triple sec, and gin.
  • Shake for approximately 20 seconds.
  • Strain and pour into a martini or coupe glass.
  • Twist and add the lemon peel as a garnish. Serve immediately.


  • There are not many variations available on this drink since it is a classic Italian recipe, however, you could consider any of the following:
  • Serve on the rocks and add club soda for a lower alcohol drink.
  • Instead of using a lemon peel, you can garnish with a slice of orange, or orange peel.
  • I would not recommend substituting Grand Marnier or Gran Gala for the triple sec in this recipe as it will alter the color of the drink.  The triple sec works because it is colorless.
  • Consider chilling your martini or coupe glass for a few minutes before serving by either placing it in the freezer, or filling it with ice.  This will help keep the drink cooler and will give it that nice, frosty look.
