Thirsty Thursday: 4th of July Cocktail Recipe





Happy Thursday! One day closer to the long 4th of July holiday weekend! 


Last night I was all over the internet, looking for recipes for new and interesting 4th of July fare. Lucky me, I found this "Fourth of July Cocktail" recipe on the Food Network website (link HERE). Now I'm dying to try it, perhaps a trip to the ABC store is a requisite stop today! :-) 



Ingredients

  • 1 ounce watermelon schnapps
  • 1 big splash cranberry juice
  • 1 very thin slice jalapeno or serrano pepper
  • 1 slice lemon
  • 1 slice lime
  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila
  • 1/4 ounce blue curacao
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • Watermelon wedge, for garnish (optional)

Directions

Mix the schnapps and cranberry juice in a shaker; pour into an ice-filled glass.
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.

Do you have any favorite drink recipes for 4th of July? What do you think about the slice of pepper in this one? Hmmm.....interesting! 
Hope your day is fantastic!
