Mmm... I used blueberries, strawberries and raspberries and did use blue curacao against all odds. And it turned very nice, slightly spicy and slightly cool blue colour, but not too strongly. I also made the milk and sour cream mix in the ice cream maker and it turned out good, but it melts as soon as it hits the bowl. Also, the ice recipe needs to be doubled for 4 and the berries halved for 4 persons.
