Serve an ice cold, patriotic Fourth of July Cocktail at your next picnic or barbecue. With a blend of citrus and peach flavors, this easy to make cocktail will become a year ’round favorite.
You’re going to love my recipe for this Fourth of July Cocktail because it’s fruity, flavorful, and easy to make! Plus, it’s super refreshing and perfect for enjoying on a hot summer day.
Holidays are the perfect time to bust out some seasonal cocktail recipes, and July 4th is no exception. While you fire up the grill and pull the pasta salad out of the refrigerator, don’t forget to mix up a drink, too.
This Fourth of July cocktail is made with a few simple ingredients: clear rum, blue curacao, peach schnapps, and club soda.
Blue curacao is where you’ll get your bright blue color in this recipe, so it’s a must if you’re looking for a blue cocktail. Plus, it’s inexpensive and easy to keep on hand for making more fun cocktails in the future.
I’ve been able to find it at any local liquor store near the schnapps and other flavored liquors.
If you love colorful cocktails, check out my Grinch Cocktail, which was admittedly, the inspiration for this blue cocktail! Even though they have different ingredients, the stunning visual is the same. Colorful cocktail, with a pop of red from the maraschino cherry on top.
My Grinch Cocktail is made with Midori, which is a melon flavored liquor that gives the cocktail its green tint.
I am all about a cool and refreshing cocktail in the summer months. I chose to use club soda in this recipe to keep the calories low and the drink light and refreshing.
If you prefer, you can use sprite instead. You can also try different flavored club sodas, if you’re feeling adventurous. To make your drinks more festive, try adding a fun patterned paper straw to your drinks, or a glittery swizzle sticks (these are so cool!).
