Red, white, and blue cocktails are a perfect way to celebrate your country! Show your national pride this month with these patriotic red, white, and blue recipes.


Fire Cracker Cocktail – from the Budget Savvy Diva


  • 1.5 oz vodka
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1.5 oz. blue curaçao
  • 1 oz. grenadine
  • Splash of simple syrup


  1. Make simple syrup – All you do is take ¼ cup of water and ¼ cup of sugar in a saucepan over medium heat – stir until all the sugar is dissolved. Take the saucepan off the heat. Allow the syrup to cool ( it is THAT simple)
  2. Making the drink – take a tall glass and fill with ice. Slowly add grenadine.
  3. Next add blue curaçao – slowly — the weight of the liquid is different than the grenadine thus it floats on top.
  4. Next take a shaker – place ice lemon juice, simple syrup and vodka. Cover and shake. Slowly add to the glass
  5. Garnish with a cherry if you like


Red White and Blue Sangria – from Growing Up Gable


  • 1 bottle Moscato white wine
  • ½ cup Triple Sec
  • Red and blue fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries or red apples


  1. Combine wine and Triple Sec in a large pitcher.
  2. Remove stems and other non-edible portions from fruit. Add fruit to the pitcher.
  3. Allow the sangria to sit or serve immediately. This can be made up to a day in advance.
