Patriotic Cocktail #SundaySupper
With Memorial Day upon us our Sunday Supper crew has teamed up to bring you recipes filled with red white and blue foods to celebrate the long holiday weekend in remembrance of those that gave their lives while in service to our great country.
Colt and I spent 2 days trying to perfect a Patriotic Red White and Blue Cocktail recipe with the colors of the American Flag that not only looked pretty but was equally as delicious and easy to make.
After many attempts to achieve gorgeous layers of red, white and blue with different fruit purees and cream we finally decided on a simple Patriotic Cocktail with whole berries soaked in a mixture of lime for a murky white color, 7up and vodka.
A perfect cocktail to enjoy while celebrating an important day of reflection and patriotism.
In 2 martini glasses layer 1/4 cup Blueberries and 1/4 cup Strawberries or Raspberries or a combination in each glass.
In a martini shaker stir together juice of 1 Lime, 1 teaspoon Sugar, 4 shots 7up and 2 shots vodka.
Stir until well combined and strain out ice while pouring mixture evenly between both glasses.
Garnish glass with an additional Strawberry.
As you slowly sip on the cocktail the berries will infuse with the liquor for an extra special treat to enjoy at the end.
Whether your hosting a Memorial Day or 4th of July party or barbecue make sure to check out all the delicious idea's from my fellow Sunday Supper taste makers for a memoriable celebration after the recipe to amuse your guests.
