Red, White and Blue Cocktails

Red, White and Blue Cocktails

This year on Independence Day, make your cocktail game just a little easier with simple recipes that don’t require a lot of measuring. Those mini 50ml bottles at your local liquor store allow you to just grab a cup of ice, a little bit of ingredients and an entire mini bottle, topped off with soda. Not only are they simple and delicious, they’re also festively colorful!
 
RED: Stars and Stripes
1 bottle (50 ml) Jose Cuervo Tradicional
50 ml grapefruit juice
10 ml Campari
10 ml Fresh Lime Juice
10 ml Simple Syrup
 
Build the drink in an ice-filled mason jar, top with club soda and garnish with an orange slice.
 
WHITE: Boodles the Beautiful
1 bottle (50 ml) Boodles Gin
10 ml Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
10 ml Fresh Lemon Juice
1 can San Pellegrino Pompelmo
 
Build the drink in an ice-filled mason jar. Add the gin, liqueur and lemon juice, then top with San Pellegrino Pompelmo.

1 bottle (50 ml) Hangar 1 Vodka
20 ml Fresh Lemon Juice
20 ml Simple Syrup
