Red, White, and Booze: Two Awesome Drinks to Sip on 4th of July
Ah, 4th of July. The one day a year we celebrate America’s Independence by watching fireworks, eating barbecue, and sipping on festive cocktails like these.
Makes 1 tall cocktail
6 ounces watermelon
1 ounce blueberry vodka
1-2 lemon wedges
Blue decorating sugar, optional for rim
Puree watermelon, vodka and juice of one lemon wedge in a blender. Add ice (to desired thickness) and blend until smooth.
If sugaring the rim, pour a small amount of blue decorating sugar onto a plate. Run lemon wedge around the rim of the glass. Dip rim in sugar.
Pour cocktail into glass.
This is a simple, refreshing drink that is a bit more fruit juice than cocktail, but it hits the spot on a hot day.
Layered Patriotic Punch
Cranberry Apple Juice 8oz
Sobe Pina Colada 8fl oz
G2 Gatorade Blueberry-Pomegranate 8oz
1 Part Whipped Cream Vodka 1.5oz
Start by filling glasses to the brim with ice then pour the drink with the highest sugar content into the cup (Cranberry Apple Juice). Fill them approximately one third full. For the second layer pour the second drink with the lower sugar content (Sobe Pina Colada), slowly to prevent mixing through the ice. Fill approximately second third of the glasses. Finish with the sugar-free drink (G2 Gatorade Blueberry-Pomegranate). Top each glass with vodka. The vodka will sit on top of the creation. Be careful, this drink can be very strong!
