The Bar Is Open

In honor of the 4th of July, we're featuring a layered red and blue drink tonight. When you add the ice, you'll get a little bit of white, too. It was inspired by Guy Fieri's Fourth of July Cocktail, but we've changed it up a bit.

The Patriot
  • 2 ounces watermelon schnapps

  • 1/2 ounce cranberry juice

  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila

  • 1/4 ounce blue curacao

  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup

Mix the watermelon schnapps and cranberry juice in a cocktail shaker. Pour into ice filled glass. Rinse shaker and mix tequila, blue curacao, and simple syrup. Pour very gently over red layer.

The layers look great, but are for presentation only. Stir each cocktail well before drinking for best flavor.

Please enjoy your Patriot responsibly. I will be back tomorrow with a bonus holiday drink (and possibly a tour of our bar) so I hope to see you then!
