Fourth of July Cocktail


This cocktail is one I whipped up the other weekend when I was looking for something fresh, light, and summery. It just so happened to work perfectly for the Fourth so I added a skewer of blueberries (even though the drink does not have blueberries in it - I just wanted to add a festive blue touch) and my cute little Fourth of July straws! Voila, instantly festive and super easy!

Ingredients

Strawberry Simple Syrup 
Vodka or Gin
Club soda
Holiday garnish
Crushed Ice

To Make


Combine one parts sugar and one parts water and bring to a boil
Add half a small carton of strawberries to your mixture and boil until white 
(Note, I added more sugar to taste and some food coloring to saturate the red.)
Add one part of clear liquor of your choice - I prefer Vodka
Top with club soda
Garnish accordingly 

Do any of you have any festive Fourth of July cocktails or recipes? If so, share them below! 
ps : My straws are from Target :)
