Red, White, and Boozy Cocktails

Growing up Bomb Pops or Firecracker Popsicles were an essential part of Summer. Especially on the Fourth of July! Today reminiscent of that I’m making a Boozy version for all the adults out there! These Red, White, and Boozy Cocktails are so delicious with layers of Coconut, Strawberry Watermelon, and Blue you can’t go wrong!

To make these Boozy Bomb Pops, I picked up a bottle of Smirnoff Red, White, and Berry Vodka, Blue Cuaraco, and some Smirnoff Watermelon Vodka.

This one takes a little more effort then my other recipes but, it is oh so worth it! If you’re making them for a crowd you can make a larger quantity of each “layer” at a time. Pouring it in the cups as you go. Read on for the full recipe!

Cucumber Melon Splash Cocktail

It’s no secret that I love using fresh fruits/vegetables in cocktails and with spring upon us one of my favorites is definitely Cucumbers! So, today I’m sharing this quick recipe for a Cucumber Melon Splash! When I think refreshing, cucumbers are a definite!

I used to work at this restaurant that kept liters of water infused with cucumbers in the fridge ready for table service. Honestly, I was surprised how just simply adding a few slices of cucumbers to the water really made all the difference on a hot summer day. Ever since then I’ve loved the thought of adding them to cocktails as well!

This Cucumber Melon Spritzer pairs fresh cucumbers, cantaloupe, cucumber vodka, and sparkling water for a satisfyingly light cocktail!
