Martinis & Murder 'Jurassic World' Inspired Cocktail Recipe: The Blue Nublar

Pair this dino-mite drink, created by co-host John Thrasher, with episode #80, "Murder on the Big Island."

This week, John and Daryn took their martini game to a new level. To promote the upcoming release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, John was tasked with coming up with his own drink to share with the others on the show. Move over Matt The Bartender, John's coming for your job!

The Blue Nublar is a mix of tropical inspired ingredients including pineapple/orange juice and cocnut rum. The name of the drink is inspired by the island in which both Jurassic Park and Jurassic World took place in the films, called Isla Nublar. And of course, "Blue" is inspired by the lead velociraptor we met in 2015's Jurassic World.

Here's what you'll need to make your own Blue Nublar:

Ingredients

Crushed ice
1 ounce of coconut rum
1/2 ounce Blue Curacao (If you like your drinks on the sweeter side, add 1 ounce instead of 1/2)
2 ounces Pineapple/Orange Juice

Method

1. Mix with ice in a shaker

2. Serve

3. Get tickets to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, in theaters June 22!

But Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom isn't the only story with a whole lot of drama going down on the big island. This week, John and Daryn discuss the case surrounding Thalia Massie. The murder and all of the tragic details of the case took place in the early 1900s in Hawaii, before it was even a State.
