Happy birthday USA! Let's celebrate with a red, white and blue cocktail. Who needs a birthday cake when this drink looks so cool?
1/2 cup of vodka
A splash of lemon juice
1/4 cup of blue curacao
1-2 tablespoons of grenadine
Measuring cups and spoons
Grab a martini glass and fill it with ice and water for about a minute so that the glass gets nice and chilly. Toss the water and ice before pouring the drink.
Pour vodka and lemon juice into a martini shaker with ice. Shake for a few seconds and pour into the glass. Slowly add 1-2 tablespoons of grenadine, depending on how thick or thin your glass is. Once this is done, you should see two separate layers forming: a red layer on the bottom and a white layer on top. Slowly begin to pour 1/4 cup of blue curacao into the glass. Now, you should clearly see three layers of alcohol: red, white, and blue!
**NOTE: This is a layered drink. It will take you a few tries to master it, but once you do, it will be worth the trouble!***
