Delicious And Easy Fourth of July Cocktail Recipes
I love enjoying a good cocktail on special occasions. So of course the Fourth of July is a perfect day to celebrate with a good cocktail. Here are six delicious and easy Fourth of July cocktail recipes that I’m sure you’ll enjoy! Let me know which ones you’d like to try…
Soaked Watermelon Slice Popsicles
¾ cup tequila
½ cup Sparkling Ice Strawberry Watermelon
¼ cup lime juice
1 lb watermelon
Stir together tequila, Strawberry Watermelon Sparkling Ice, and lime juice in a large bowl. Cut watermelon into wedges and soak in Sparkling Ice mixture for 15 minutes. Insert popsicle sticks into wedges then freeze on a rack-lined baking sheet for 1 hour.
Frozé Watermelon Granita
1 bottle Santa Margherita Sparkling Rosé
1 quart watermelon-rosemary sorbet (store bought or recipe below)
2 cups diced, seedless watermelon
Spoon a scoop of sorbet into the bottom of a chilled glass and top with a tablespoon or so of the watermelon cubes. Pour the Santa Margherita Sparkling Rosé over the sorbet and melon. Garnish with mint. Serve immediately with a silver spoon.
Purchase sorbet from a gourmet market instead of making your own.
To Make Watermelon Sorbet
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
1 cup water
3 sprigs of rosemary
3 pounds seedless watermelon cut into cubes (about 10 cups)
½ cup lime juice
¼ cup and 2 tablespoons tequila
In a small saucepan bring the sugar, water, and rosemary to a boil. Remove it from the heat and let it cool to room temperature, then strain. Combine the rosemary syrup, watermelon, lime juice, and tequila in a blender and process until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve and refrigerate overnight. Freeze the sorbet “granita-style” by putting it in the freezer and stirring every hour for five hours.
Fresh basil leaves
1 oz gin
½ oz simple syrup
½ oz fresh lemon juice
Find some fun glasses to use – rocks glasses or stemless wine glasses look great. Muddle 6 blackberries and 3 basil leaves. Add gin, simple syrup, and lemon juice. Top off with Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore DOCG. Garnish with an extra few blackberries and a sprig of basil.
2 oz Aperol
6 oz Sparkling Ice Lemon Lime
Orange twist, for garnish
In an ice filled Collins glass, add Aperol and float with Sparkling Ice Lemon Lime. Garnish with an orange twist and serve.
3 parts Purity Vodka
1 cup mixed berries
1 long piece of lemon zest
4 parts distilled water
Combine the ingredients in a glass pitcher and let sit, refrigerated, for at least 4 hours – or preferably overnight, before serving.
Serve the vodka mixed with the berry water either shaken or served strained or combined over ice.
Red, White and Blue, Berry Mule
2 oz berry Vodka (blueberry or raspberry)
6 oz Extra Spicy Brooklyn Crafted Ginger Beer Mini
Muddle blueberries and blackberries in shaker. Add vodka and shake. Fill Moscow mule mug with ice. Pour in muddled berries and vodka and fill with Brooklyn Crafted (roughly 6oz). Garnish with blueberries and blackberries.
