Red, White and Booze Part Deux

Red, White, and HPNOTIQ Blue Martini Martini Photo

The Fourth of July is right around the corner. I can almost smell the sulfur in the air! Although The Fourth wouldn’t be The Fourth without fireworks, it also wouldn’t be The Fourth without some festive libations. Awhile back I posted a few red, white and blue boozy recipes, including non-alcoholic options for each. I thought it was time to add to our patriotic, bar tending arsenal. A search of the internet came up with some doozies.

Red, White and HPNOTIQ Blue Martini


1 oz. Citrus Vodka

1 splash of Lemon Lime Soda


Shake with ice, strain into a martini glass and slowly add a touch of grenadine. Garnish with chopped coconut.

This flaming red, white and blue shooter doubles as an example of a density column.
