Blue Crush Cocktail

Jun 1, 2023

The Blue Crush Cocktail stands in for our representation of the light blue stripe on the progressive Pride flag! This part of the trans flag represents the trans men and trans-masculine people that are a part of this community! 

It’s important to remember the trailblazers who have paved the way for transgender rights and visibility. One notable figure in trans male history is Michael Dillon, the first trans man to undergo reassignment surgery. In the 1940s, Dillon courageously pursued medical interventions to align his physical body with his true gender identity. His journey challenged societal norms and set a precedent for future generations of transgender individuals seeking gender-affirming procedures. Dillon’s ground-breaking decision not only affirmed his own identity but also sparked conversations and advancements in transgender healthcare, opening doors for countless others to follow in his footsteps.

It sends a powerful message of acceptance, support, and unity within the LGBTQ+ community. By honoring the journeys of transgender people, we acknowledge their resilience, celebrate their achievements, and reaffirm our commitment to equality and inclusivity for everyone! Let’s stand by our trans brothers this pride! 

Here’s how to make this cocktail:

  • 1 oz Stoli Vodka
  • 1 oz blue curacao
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz cream of coconut

Add ingredients to a blender with a cup of ice. Blend until smooth. Pour into a highball glass. Garnish with a slice of pineapple and a maraschino cherry.

Enjoy and drink responsibly.

Sustainability, LGBTQ, diversity, and injustice are core pillars of Stoli. The original vodka recipe was developed in 1938, and by 1948 it was being made and bottled in Latvia, where the award-winning Stoli lineup is made to this day. Stoli has a long, rich history of supporting the LGBTQ community, when in 1991 Stoli became one of the first spirit brands to actively champion LGBTQ issues on global equality, visibility, and acceptance for all. In 1997, Stoli was purchased by Yuri Shefler, transforming Stoli into a vertically integrated company, which lead to Putin waging a war in 2000 for the vodka trademark, which has been unsuccessful. 

In 2018, Stoli commemorated the 40th anniversary of Harvey Milk being the first openly gay elected official in California, by launching the limited edition, individually numbered, Harvey Milk Limited Edition bottle, with proceeds going to the Harvey Milk Foundation LGBGTQ programming in Eastern Europe and the Baltic nations. Proudly Latvian, Stoli has affirmed their ongoing support of Ukraine and is steadfast in denouncing Russia’s aggression on the sovereign nation. Stoli’s spirit continue to inspire to create a better future for all.
