Happy Tuesday! It's softball Tuesday for me, which I am excited about. Tonight we are playing a really good team filled with fun players. It will be a good time. My second oldest is on a field trip right now with his class which he was excited about, so I can't wait to hear all about it when he gets home. My oldest, the girls and I are just relaxing at home.....we had a busy day yesterday.
There has been a lot of talk about the 4th of July around here lately which has given me the idea to create a new patriotic cocktail. I searched through my bar
for something blue...blue curacao? Nope, couldn't find any........ahhhh, blueberry schnapps = perfect! I haven't used this in a while and it's definitely time to use it again.
This cocktail is SUPER good! It is definitely one to drink on a warm/hot day. It has cake vodka (hence the "celebration" part) and the blueberry schnapps mixes well with it especially topped with the sprite, yum! I poured some grenadine down the side to give it that American feel and it is perfect!
Here is my recipe for a Patriotic Celebration:
- 1 1/2 ounces cake vodka
- 1 ounce blueberry schnapps
- 3 ounces lemon-lime soda
- 1/2 ounce grenadine
In a shaker, add ice, cake vodka and blueberry schnapps. Shake and dump everything into a cocktail glass. Add more ice until glass is filled 3/4 full. Pour sprite on top. Pour grenadine down the side of the glass.
Here is a photo of the end result:

Here is to a new layered patriotic cocktail!
