Stars and Stripes Cocktail

The Stars and Stripes cocktail is a patriotic drink that is perfect for celebrating holidays like the Fourth of July and Memorial Day. This cocktail features a mix of refreshing flavors and striking colors that resemble the American flag, making it a fun and festive addition to any party or gathering.

To make a Stars and Stripes cocktail, you will need a few key ingredients and some basic bartending skills. Start by gathering your supplies, which include vodka, blue curacao, grenadine, lemon juice, and club soda. You will also need a cocktail shaker, a jigger for measuring ingredients, and a highball glass or a martini glass for serving.

To start, fill your cocktail shaker with ice. Add 2 ounces of vodka, 1 ounce of blue curacao, and 1/2 ounce of lemon juice to the shaker. Shake the ingredients vigorously for about 10 seconds to ensure they are well mixed and chilled.

Next, strain the mixture into your highball glass or martini glass. Slowly pour 1/2 ounce of grenadine down the side of the glass, allowing it to sink to the bottom. The grenadine will create a beautiful layer at the bottom of the glass, resembling the red stripes on the American flag.

Finally, top off the cocktail with a splash of club soda to add a bubbling effect and to balance out the sweetness of the other ingredients. Garnish with a lemon twist or a cherry for an extra touch of elegance.

The Stars and Stripes cocktail is not only delicious but also visually stunning. The vibrant blue color from the blue curacao, the deep red from the grenadine, and the sparkling bubbles from the club soda create a truly patriotic drink that is sure to impress your guests. Cheers to celebrating the stars and stripes!

Best served in a Cordial Glass.
