Re: idea for a 4th of July cocktail

  • If you want something colorful, check out this page from Hostess with the Mostess.  For shooters, you could do the "red, white, and blue shooter".  You can also search it on youtube to see what it looks like.  If you don't care about being color matchy, do the regular stuff like lemonade and vodka or the Southern Comfort Slushie someone posted not that long ago.

    Matt loves Munkii!!!
  • Last year I made a white wine sangria that was a hit.

    1 bottle of dry white wine

    Handful of Blueberries

    Handful of Raspberries or strawberries

    Ginger Ale ( I don't remember the amount of this- maybe 2 cups?)  If you google Sangria you can find a ton of recipes. 

    Easy- and festive looking.

  • The food network magazine had clear glasses rimmed in crushed blue poprocks with a red drink, it was super cute.  You could do a cosmo punch or some sort of cranberry/vodka type thing.
  • I am making red & blue jello shots.
  • We are making the American Flag drinks that we drank on our honeymoon in Jamaica a few weeks ago!

    Fill 1/3 of a clear glass full with frozen strawberry daiquiri
    Fill next 1/3 of the class with frozen pina colada
    Fill the remaining portion of your class with Blue Curacao

    Happy 4th of July!
