What You Should Drink This Memorial Day

Memorial Day is just around the corner, we may not be able to celebrate with the family like normal, but we certainly can still celebrate and enjoy the weekend! One great way to do that is to grab a good book and kick back with a patriotic drink, lucky for you we can help with one of those!

 

The Drink

 

We're bringing the stars for the weekend, and that means you're bringing the stripes! This drink is a red, white, and blue layered cocktail. Let's just say, Instagram is going to LOVE this one! (Speaking of Instagram, are you following us yet?)

 

Ingredients

 

  • 1 oz grenadine
  • 3 oz lemonade
  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz blue curacao
  • 1 Handful of ice

 

Instructions

 

  1. Add grenadine to a glass then fill with ice
  2. In a shaker, shake lemonade and vodka then gently pour the mixture over the back of a spoon into the glass creating the white layer of the drink. 
  3. Cascade blue curacao over the back of a spoon to make the final blue layer.
