Chow Shot of Old Glory: a Recipe for Your Fourth
I made this up for you just now (but haven’t tested it).
1/2 oz POM pomegranate juice
1/2 oz Hpnotiq (a blue vodka-and-tropical-juice liqueur)
1/2 oz Cruzan (a rum cream liqueur, or use plain old cream in a pinch)
Pour, in that order, into a shot or liqueur glass.
The liquor stores are closed tomorrow, so plan ahead.
I went home and made this, and it was a disaster: The POM juice and the Hpnotiq mixed into a dull purple-gray, and the cream rum curdled when it touched the fruit juice, and then sank. The red element needs to be more syrupy and viscous. I don’t know what to do for white. The Hpnotiq is delicious on its own… pop it in the freezer and drink blue slushees beneath the fireworks tomorrow, stash the cream rum in the fridge for some other day’s after-dinner-party coffee drinks, and chug the POM as a hangover aid on the fifth.
Who’s got a functional red-white-and-blue-layered cocktail or shot recipe?
