Our Blue Mauritius cocktail got its name in a very interesting way. It contains Starr African Rum imported from Mauritius, an island known for two things: the extinction of dodo birds and the Blue Mauritius stamps. The legend is that after 500 of the Blue Mauritius stamps were printed, it was discovered that an error was made with the wording. The error was exposed only after the stamps were already released, causing the stamps to become extremely rare. Thus, since “any cocktail with the word dodo in it just doesn’t sound very appealing,” the cocktail’s creator, Nicolas, decided that the dodo option was out and hence our Blue Mauritius cocktail came to be.
