Stars and Stripes Recipe
This refreshingly patriotic drink is not your average blueberry vodka martini. With flavors of lemon juice, raspberry brandy and ginger beer blended together with absinthe licorice tincture for just the right amount of spice, it's sure to be a crowd pleaser at any summer picnic or barbeque!
5 Fresh blueberries
1 oz. Blueberry vodka
1/4 oz. Absinthe
1/4 oz. Fresh lemon juice
1/4 oz. Simple syrup
1 drizzle Raspberry brandy
Ginger beer, chilled
Sugar cube, for garnish
Place the blueberries in a cocktail shaker. Muddle them using a muddler or wooden spoon.
Pour the vodka, absinthe, simple syrup, lemon juice, then add some ice.
Shake well until chilled.
Pour it into a highball glass, skipping the strainer.
Drizzle with some raspberry brandy and top it off with ginger beer.
Garnish with a sugar cube. Serve and enjoy.
The Stars and Stripes cocktail is a layered patriotic drink that's perfect for Memorial Day, 4th of July, or Labor Day.
