Red White And Blue Smirnoff Firecracker Party Drink:
Holiday Alcoholic Drinks should be fun. Don’t you think? I got all excited about making a layered drink with the Smirnoff Red white and blue. I REALLY wanted to use pop rocks on the rim.
Ingredients for this Smirnoff Red White and Berry Recipe:
We tried several combinations of ingredients before I decided this recipe is the Best.
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.
The 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.
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 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.
- 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.
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.
Set the glass flat onto the pop rocks plate. Push the candies onto the honey.
Making this Drink:
- Fill your rimmed glass with ice and set aside.
- Pour ice into your cocktail shaker.
- Measure out your vodka, lemonade and curacao and pour each into the cocktail shaker.
- Shake the cocktail until it is very cold.
- Pour the blue mixture into your ice filled glass.
- Measure out your grenadine.
- Pour the grenadine down the sides of your glass to form the bottom layer of red.
