Patriotic Drinks

With the 4th of July and my family's annual seafood fest quickly approaching I couldn't help but think about what food and beverages we should serve. I stumbled upon these two recipes on Pinterest (follow me HERE) and knew they would be perfect for Patriotic festivities.

The Bomb Pop Drink (recipe HERE)

This drink is rather fun to look at and very tasty to drink (once you stir it). My one HUGE suggestion though is to NOT buy the good for you cranberry juice. As you see in the photo I bought cranberry juice with no high fructose corn syrup. You need this junk in the drink if you want it to layer correctly which is why my version doesn't have a bigger white layer. Also, the UV Blue vodka is rather cheap so if you need to dump a glass while testing the layering out don't feel bad for doing so. Read more tips on the recipe page HERE.

Strawberry Sucker (recipe HERE)

This drink almost didn't make the blog for so many reasons. One reason mainly being that my states liquor stores do not sell Strawberry schnapps. (Seriously like WTF??!!) I grabbed Raspberry but when I got home I realized I should have picked up the Watermelon. (Note to self for future.) Then I realized the club soda was past it's prime, but I still tested it out and my Raspberry Sucker version was quite tasty. Even though my raspberry wasn't bad I still think the Watermelon schnapps would be ever more refreshing and perfect for Summer. To go with the Patriotic theme I knew I needed blue so I opted for a skewer  of  blueberries instead of strawberries.(Recipe HERE)

If you only wanted to make one of these and had to choose I would definitely suggest the Bomb Pop drink (recipe). It is by far the best summer drink I've had in a while. Do you think you'll give one of these a try for your 4th of July celebration? Or do you have a different drink you turn to for holiday celebrations?
Have a Happy Weekend!
