Happy 4th of July!  It has been a fabulous summer so far.

With Independence Day here, it seems a patriotic inspired cocktail is in order.

Stars and Stripes - Red, White and Blue Layered Shot

This one is an incredibly striking drink with layers of red, white and blue.

Imagine the peachy flavor of warm sunshine on a summer day, brightened by the bitter orange of the blue curacao and sweetened by the grenadine.

It's like electric candy in a shot glass.

Red, White and Blue Layered Shot

The layers separate perfectly like magic.  But, no magic trick required.

Pour your grenadine into your cocktail glass first.  Gently pour your blue curacao into the glass and then pour the peach schnapps gently on top.

You can pour it off the back of a spoon, but honestly a medicine syringe makes easy work of achieving this fabulous look.

    5. That is an amazing photo, I bow to your husband's photo skills.

      Blue curacao reminds me of a drink from my teenage years...errr, I mean, my "only after I turned 21" years. Blue whales - 1 bottle of blue curacao, 1 bottle grain alcohol, 2 gallons lemonade, and a buttload of sliced oranges.
