red white blue cocktailFor your Fourth of July celebrations, here’ s a cocktail that’s actually red, white, and blue. You’ll need to layer the red and blue parts carefully, but the stunning visual presentation is worth it.  (The white section — the ice — is easier, of course.) The combination of watermelon schnapps, cranberry juice, blue curacao, tequila, and hot pepper is one you most likely haven’t tasted before, either. This all-American drink comes from the Hide Away Country Inn in Bucyrus, Ohio, with its six acres of landscaped grounds, specializing in weddings but also a great place for a corporate retreat or private getaway.


Patriotic Cocktail


  1. 1 ounce watermelon schnapps
  2. 1 big splash cranberry juice
  3. 1 very thin slice jalapeno or Serrano pepper
  4. 1 slice lemon
  5. 1 slice lime
  6. 1 1/2 ounces tequila
  7. 1/4 ounce blue curacao
  8. 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  9. Watermelon wedge, for garnish (optional)
  1. Mix the schnapps and cranberry juice in a shaker; pour into an ice-filled glass.
  2. Muddle the jalapeno pepper, lemon and lime slices, tequila, blue curacao and simple syrup (to make a batch, dissolve sugar in equal parts hot water and chill) in the shaker. Slowly strain into the glass over the red layer. Garnish with watermelon, if desired.
