Blue Lagoon is a popular summer cocktail featuring blue Curaçao mixed with vodka and lemonade. It is typically garnished with an orange slice or a lemon slice due to the flavor of the Curaçao. Blue Lagoon is commonly poured on a highball glass.

One variation adds a dash of lime cordial to the mix. Another variation with a dash of raspberry cordial or grenadine is known as a "Fruit tingle", after the candy available in some countries (Australia).
