We are flat-out in love with our latest (electric blue!) libation. But there’s only one problem: It doesn’t have a name!

Our latest Cocktail of the Month is the ideal drink to sip while flipping through our April issue (out on newsstands now!), a celebration of all things blue, from bungalows atop turquoise seas to a Lowcountry beach house decked out in blue and white. Enter your best name idea for the drink for a chance to be featured in an upcoming issue of Coastal Living! (See all of our past winners here.)

How to Enter (See full contest rules here.):

  1. Enter anytime from March 10 until April 13, 2017.
  2. Suggest a fun, creative, and evocative name for the recipe. Explain the name in a sentence or two in the comments below (50 words or less).
  3. The winning recipe name (and your name, if you wish) will be printed in an upcoming issue of Coastal Living!

How to Make Our April Cocktail of the Month:

Place 2 coupe glasses in the freezer for 10 minutes. Combine 6 Tbsp. pineapple juice, 6 Tbsp. (about 3 oz.) gin, ¼ cup (about 2 oz.) blue Curaçao, 2 Tbsp. (about 1 oz.) velvet falernum, and 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (from 1 large lemon) in a cocktail shaker. Add 1 large egg white, and fill shaker with ice. Cover and shake vigorously 30 seconds; strain evenly into chilled glasses. Garnish each cocktail with a lemon peel twist, if desired, and serve immediately. Serves 2.
