Roman candle cocktail with berry vodka, cranberry juice, grenadine and blue curacao to create a layered drink for a party

Roman Candle Cocktail

3 oz. Three-O Berry Vodka
½ Oz. Cranberry Juice
Dash of Grenadine
½ oz. Blue Curacao

Shake vodka, cranberry juice and grenadine in a shaker with ice. Strain into martini glass. Pour Blue Curaçao gently down the side of the glass so it comes to settle on the bottom.

Yes, it’s November and I’m talking about the 4th of July. Remember this in 7-8 months when you’re planning an Independence Day party and you can thank me later. I figure it’s better late (early?) than never.

And I’m sure you could come up with a different name to use this pretty drink another time of the year. Cut the lemon zest to look like a bow instead and call it a Christmas present or something.
