4th of July, happy day
Need a festive cocktail?
First some tips:
Be sure to use a tall glass for this recipe. We used 16-ounce glasses. If you use a smaller glass, it will be more difficult to see the different colored layers since you will need to use smaller portions of the ingredients. Also, the min bomb pop popsicle is more likely to tip over the glass if it is smaller.
While I used blue raspberry vodka for this recipe, you can also use other blue colored liquors like blue curacao or blue raspberry rum.
For a lower alcohol content cocktail, you can use regular lemonade instead of Mike's Hard Lemonade. The flavor will be very similar but the cocktail will be a little less potent.
If you are looking for a kid-friendly version of our Bomb Pop Cocktail, substitute Mike's Hard lemonade with regular lemonade and use blue raspberry kool-aid instead of the blue raspberry vodka!
- 1 12 ounce bottle of Mike's Hard Lemonade
- 2 ounces Blue Raspberry Vodka
- 2 ounces Grenadine
- 2 Mini Bomb Pop popsicles
- 2 cups of ice
- Pour one ounce of grenadine into a tall glass. Try to pour the grenadine into the center of the glass so that it does not get on the sides of the glass.
- Carefully fill the glass with ice and then pour in ½ bottle of Mike's Hard Lemonade-there should be about 1 inch left at the top of the glass. The grenadine should stay on the bottom of the glass since it is heavier and thicker than Mike's hard lemonade.
- Carefully layer blue raspberry vodka on top of Mike's Hard Lemonade. You can do so by using a pour spout on the bottle of blue raspberry vodka or you can flip a spoon over and slowly pour the vodka over the rounded portion of the spoon. This will cause the vodka to enter the glass slower and will end up becoming a layer on top of the other ingredients.
- Garnish with a mini bomb pop popsicle!
