Independance Day Cocktail Time

     When I think about a cocktail for the fourth of July, I think about three.  A Red, White and Blue cocktail, giving you three distinct flavors to choose from.

The Red Cocktail

· 1 ½ oz. Vanilla Rum

· 1 oz. Spiced Rum

· ½ oz. Pomegranate Liqueur

· ½ oz. Lime Juice

· 1 ½ oz. Pineapple Juice.

Place all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice, and shake until chilled.   Strain into a pint glass filled with ice.     Garnish with an orange and a Cherry.
The Blue Cocktail


· ½ oz. White Rum
· ½ oz. Blue Curacao
· 3/4 oz. Fireball
· ½ oz. Pineapple Juice
Place all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake until chilled, strain into a rocks glass and serve as a shot.
The White Cocktail
· 1 ½ oz. Abuelo 7 Year Old Rum
· 3/4 oz. Siesta Key Spiced Rum
· 1 1/2 oz. Pineapple Juice
· 1 1/2 oz. Crème of Coconut 
Put all ingredients into a Cocktail glass filled with ice, shake, top up with Barritt’s Ginger Beer and garnish with an American Flag
Try one of all of these fun fourth of July Cocktails for your patio party, they will bring things to life and refresh you on a warm afternoon.   Remember that the Fourth of July is to celebrate the independence of our country and a day for fun.  Keep you alcohol related fun off of the highways.  If you have had any to many, call a cab or get home by some means other than driving.  I like having my readers and don't want to loose any of you.  ;o)
