Chill out on America’s birthday with this icy cool, patriotic cocktail.
The best part of every summer is celebrating the Fourth of July with some good food, friends, fireworks, and some good drinks. Now, we wouldn’t bat an eye at anyone cracking open a can of a quality American beer at an Independence Day cookout, but we’ve put together something a little more festive to drink when we salute the red, white and blue.
The Star-Spangled Slushie is a refreshing treat that features three colorful layers, each one made from a spirit or mixer (vodka, grenadine, blue curaçao) blended with lemonade and ice. Pour the layers on top of each other into your glass to create a cocktail that you’ll want to stand up and salute before consuming.
