Fourth of July Cocktail

We love Fourth of July celebrations.  Who doesn't love outdoor parties, grilling, cocktails, and fireworks?  This year our drink of choice is from Guy Fieri of Food Network fame.  Guy created this red, white, and blue cocktail and we plan to enjoy it.

Guy Fieri's Fourth of July Cocktail

Fourth of July Cocktail


     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)


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.
