Whether you’re attending a backyard BBQ or simply spending the holiday relaxing at home, these 4th of July cocktail recipes are sure to get you in the holiday spirit. We’ve searched the web for the best red, white and blue drinks and we think we’ve found the most festive and the most refreshing summer drink recipes. These 4th of July cocktails are definitely worth trying. From Jell-O shots, to sangria, to strong cocktails, we’ve found the best recipes to try. So get ready. It’s time to explore the top ten 4th of July recipes in the USA!
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. Garnish with watermelon, if desired.
Combine the ingredients in a large pitcher and stir. Chill in the refrigerator for at least four hours.
This one gets a bit complicated, but believe us… it’s worth it! Head over to http://www.tablespoon.com/ for the full recipe
Combine all ingredients in a glass filled with ice and stir. Garnish with a filet mignon, shrimp and scallops skewered.
Spread the Pop Rocks candy on a plate. Brush light corn syrup around the rim of a shot glass, then dip the rim in the Pop Rocks. Pour grenadine in the glass until it’s 1/3 full. In a cup, mix one part half and half to two parts Maui® Blue Hawaiian Schnapps. Slowly pour the Schnapps mixture over the back of a spoon so the dense mixture rests on top of the grenadine. Serve immediately.
TIP: For those of you who are skilled in “floating,” or layering drinks, omit mixing the half and half and Schnapps and simply layer the white and blue.
Combine UV Blue Raspberry Vodka and Tropical Punch Vodka in 86oz bucket. Fill with sour/margarita mix, splash in some Lemon Lime Soda, and enjoy. Or allow one of Howl at the Moon’s talented bartenders to mix you up a Mega Margarita bucket at our Red, White, and Brew Bash!
Spread out 1 package of Pop Rocks on a plate. On a different plate pour some grenadine or simple syrup (if you don’t have any on hand you actually could just wet the rim with water). Dip your glass into the plate with syrup on it. Next dip your glass into the pop rocks. Place a handful of raspberries in the bottom of your glass and drizzle grenadine over them. Next add your Vodka. Add as much ice as your glass will hold – this will separate the blueberries from the raspberries and give you the red white and blue look. Slowly pour in your lemon-lime soda. If you pour too fast, the grenadine will mix into it too much and take away from the “white” aspect of the drink. Add a handful of blueberries on top.
Wash, stem, quarter and freeze strawberries for at least 1 hour. Place three frozen strawberries in the bottom of a champagne flute. Add champagne. Combine tequila, limeade, and strawberry liqueur in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and pour into flute.
