Girlie Drink of the Week

Running late, because groceries don’t get shopped for themselves. I have no idea what that means, either. However, this weekend is Independence Day, and barring aliens who can’t speak and can be taken down with a laptop showing up and trying to take over our planet, we shall be hosting friends and enjoying the freedoms so many fought and died to protect. There shall be whiskey, and bourbon, and scotch, and also this, because it’s pretty and I like it.

born free cocktail

Born Free

  • 1½ oz vodka
  • 1 oz. watermelon schnapps (yes, it exists)
  • ½ oz. cranberry juice
  • ½ oz. lemon juice
  • ½ oz. blue curaçao
  • ½ oz. simple syrup
  • soda water

In a highball glass filled with ice, pour the watermelon schnapps and cranberry juice. carefully add the lemon juice, the vodka, and the simple syrup to layer the “white”. Then very carefully layer the blue curaçao on top, and finish with a bit of soda. I would mix the ingredients for each color separately and then compose the drink. Of course, you will end up stirring it anyway, so there’s that 😀
