Mariposa-MartiniAt Mariposa Cruises we make a number of tasty concoctions behind our bars for our guests to enjoy. Just in time for the long weekend we thought we would share one of our favourite cocktail recipes, in case you’d like to try this at home.

Our Featured drink is the Mariposa Martini – our signature drink

This is a fun summer favourite with refreshing citrus flavours and an eye-catching aqua blue hue. It’s a perfect drink to sip on your back patio on a warm summer day or night but it is best enjoyed on the deck of any of our six boats overlooking the Toronto skyline and islands.

Here is our step-by-step guide to making your own Mariposa Martini at home:


What you’ll need:

1 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Blue curacao
