General Comments: This is a tough one to judge. It's somewhat disappointing, but I can't tell if that's a fault of the drink itself or because of how much I enjoy blue curacao and Chambord separately. Certainly there's a sense that the two are working against each other as well, and the lemonade is no help there either. I don't want to be too down on the drink, it's nice and sweet and looks and sounds quite cool. It just should have been better than it is.
