What better way to get patriotic and get your drink on than sipping on this red, white and blue cocktail – and it even come with its own brand of fireworks from a jalapeno kick!

July 4th Cocktail


    1 ounce watermelon schnapps
    1 big splash cranberry juice or pomegranate juice
    1 very thin slice jalapeno
    1 slice lemon
    1 slice lime
    1 1/2 ounces tequila
    1/4 ounce blue curacao
    1/2 ounce simple syrup
    Watermelon wedge, for garnish (optional)


Mix the schnapps and cranberry juice in a shaker; pour into an ice-filled glass.

Muddle the jalapeno pepper, lemon and lime slices, tequila, blue curacao and simple syrup (to make a batch, dissolve sugar in equal parts hot water and chill) in the shaker. Slowly strain into the glass over the red layer.

Check your local party supply store for fun red, white and blue garnishes or just decorate with a wedge of watermelon!

Happy 4th!!!
