Celebrate the 4th with a Patriotic Cocktail

I recently shared 9 fantastic red, white & blue foods to celebrate the Fourth of July with you {everything from breakfast to appetizers to desserts}. I realized I didn’t have a beverage amongst the bunch {gasp} I needed to rectify that so we shook up a patriotic drink to go with all that festive food. I’m calling my patriotic cocktail an Uncle Sam-Tini. It’s fun, fruity and festive {and definitely red, white & blue}  You can also check out this additional slideshow for even more 4th of July Recipes

Uncle Sam-Tini
What you’ll need: {makes 2 cocktails}

2 ounces Dekuyper’s Island Punch Pucker
2 ounces lemon vodka
1 ounce cointreau
1 teaspoon agave nectar
3 tablespoons sugar – OR enough to rim glasses
maraschino cherries – to garnish

What to do:
1. Place ice cubes into martini glasses. Transfer glasses to freezer to chill while you’re preparing drinks.

2. Into a cocktail shaker filled half way with ice cubes add: island punch pucker, vodka, cointreau, agave nectar. Place top onto shaker. Shake until chilled.

3. Place sugar onto a shallow dish. Remove glasses from freezer. Discard ice. Invert glasses, place into sugar dish and gently twist until you have created a sugar rim.
