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.

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.

  1. The drink is magic! How interesting and it sounds wonderful. And there you go showing me the BBQ again – it's haunting me! It all looks amazing. Have a happy long weekend Donna!

  2. I MUST make this for our annual 4th of July party! Everyone walks home so I don't mind serving a LOT of them!!!! Have a fabulous holiday weekend, Donna!

  3. Fun, fun, fun!! Love this soo much! Here's a tip I learned for pouring the layers, if you pour each one over the back of a spoon, it will gently layer! This is great for the long weekend!!

  4. 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.

  5. I have a non alcoholic striped drink on my blog…but I wish I had all the ingredients for this one because I'd love to try it! Great post! =D
