It’s time to start thinking about the perfect 4th of July cocktail and that means red, white, and blue! That also means a big time get together with friends and a big cocktail to match. The easiest way to be a bartender at a big get together is to make a punch! Punches are so much fun to make because they are super convenient and super boozy! The punch I have made today is called Sparkle and Shine! It has a little moonshine and little champagne to kick it up a notch. It also shows its patriotic colors with red, white, and blue layered ice cubes. I love this punch for 4th of July because it not only celebrates the day but also adds a sparkle and shine to your party!

  • Layer 2: Divide 5 ounces of the coconut milk over the 15 ice cubes. Freeze
  • Layer 3: Mix grenadine and soda together and divide mixture over the 15 ice cubes. Freeze
