Ingredients for Smirnoff Red White and Berry Recipe:

Ingredients For The Red White And Berry Smirnoff Cocktail
Just a few ingredients and a cocktail shaker are all you need to make this recipe.

We tried several combinations of ingredients before I decided this recipe is the Best.

The Vodka:

The Star of this festive drink is the limited Edition Smirnoff Red and white and Berry vodka

Our patriotic drink is an absolutely delicious blend of the Red White and Berry, curacao, grenadine and homemade lemonade to keep it balanced.

This is a limited edition vodka that comes out just for the summer months. It’s released in June. Just in time for the 4th of July Holiday.

Red White and Berry vodka is sweet with cherry citrus and blue raspberry flavors all blended into a dynamite flavor combination. If you enjoy sweet drinks you will love this vodka.

Lemonade:

I am including a homemade lemonade recipe in the notes section of the recipe card in case you are out. you only need 3 tablespoons of lemonade. No need to buy it for one cocktail.

The lemonade is very easy to make with lemon juice sugar and water. You can adjust the proportions if you like it sweeter or less sweet.

The Red white and Berry needs the balance of less sweet mix to keep this cocktail from getting over the top cloying and yucky.

The layering:

The grenadine naturally falls through the curacao to the bottom of the glass creating the beautiful gradation of colors.

The Pop Rock Candy Rim:

The pop rocks react with the liquids around the edge of the glass and bang and pop continually while you sip. Very much in the spirit of the 4th.

Cool thing! Pop rocks make firecracker sounds while you’re sipping this drink.

The Method:

Tools:

  • This is a shaker drink. You will need a cocktail shaker filled with ice
  • A shot measurer for easy pouring and measuring.
  • A 15 oz. pina colada glass (or any tall collins glass).
  • 2 small flat plates for rimming the glass

Rim the Glass:

Mix together the pop rock candies to mix the red and blue colors on a flat plate.

Mixing Pop Rock Candy
mix the pop rock candies together on a flat plate.

Rim the glass with Honey. We tried simple syrup, limes and other ideas. They could not hold onto the pop rocks. Honey (or corn syrup?) is sticky and strong enough to hold onto the pop rocks.

Rimming The Glass With Honey.
Run the rim of your glass through the honey as shown to coat the glass.

Set the glass flat onto the pop rocks plate. Push the candies onto the honey.

Would love your ideas for alternatives for Red, White & Berry’s!! My husband & his best friend drank these ALL summer, so we’re looking for other similar ideas now. Any suggestions (even if they’re not 100% “as good”), I’d still LOVE to know what other things you’ve tried. Thank you!!
