Fireworks, 4th of July the Ultimate Bowl


What do fireworks, champagne, & bartenders have in common? They all pop! Pop some sparkly of the U.S. variety & celebrate our nations glory, that is food, freedom, and drinks! To get you in the spirit, we came up with a few pleasers & teasers in the lab! Enjoy, and Happy Independence Day America!

Sour Watermelontini-
3oz Vodka
2oz Watermelon Pucker
Splash of Sour Mix

Mix all of the ingredients in an ice filled martini shaker - strain into a chilled martini glass. Bottoms Up!

The Great Watermelon Bowl
1 cup Vodka
4 oz. Triple Sec
4 oz. Watermelon Liqueur
2  750ml bottles of Sparkling Wine or Champagne
2 Cups Watermelon Juice
2 Cups of White Cranberry Juice

Slice a medium sized Watermelon in half, scoop out the center & set it aside. Try to preserve any watermelon juice from the melon for mixing.

In a picture, combine vodka, triple sec, watermelon liqueur, champagne or sparkling wine, watermelon juice, white cranberry juice. Mix well. Fill watermelon with ice, & pour the mixture in the “watermelon bowl”. Add slices/chunks of watermelon for garnish.  To keep the bowl from sliding, before filling it, flatten it a little by cutting a small slice of it on the bottom. Be careful not to put a hole in it!
