Tiki Drinks for the Weekend at The Tiki LoungePosted on July 2nd, 2010 3 comments
A friend of mine from Twitter, Jen at Liberty Images suggested posting Tiki Drinks for the Weekend…I dug the idea so I’ll try to get a new one up every Friday…
I thought we’d do something nice for the Fourth of July. Our founding fathers hadn’t yet discovered the wonders of the South Pacific, and you never see a Moai in the painting of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, so here’s something we could send back to the white-wig daddies that would tickle their feather pens…
The Red, White & Blue Cocktail
Here’s the recipe, direct from Drink of the Week:
“Created at Molyvos in NYC, this Independence Day cocktail uses macerated strawberries, vodka, Cointreau and blue curacao. When all put together with a white-sugar rim, you have quite the 4th of July treat.
Red, White, & Blue Cocktail
2 oz Oval Vodka
3/4 oz Cointreau
3 Table Spoon of Macerated Strawberries (See Recipe)
A Splash of Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
A Splash of Blue Curacao
Sugar the rim of a chilled martini glass. Combine all ingredients except the blue curacao in a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into the martini glass. Drop in a splash of blue curacao.
1 Pint of Strawberries, washed and sliced
1 tablespoon of sugar
dash of balsamic vinegar”
By The Way, Liberty Images has some very kool vintage-style and retro artistic photography. Check them out at their Etsy store: Libery Images.
New Entry: Just found a recipe for a Red, White & Blue Shot:
(This is a layered shot)
• 1/3 oz grenadine
• 1/3 oz peach schnapps
• 1/3 oz blue curaçao
layered in that order. Althrough the schnapps isn’t white. I wonder if iced Sambuca would float the same way. That at least would be white. Anyway it sounds good.

Thanks again for the wink & nod…This drink sounds WONDERFUL. Indeed, I shall have to try and make time in today’s schedule to grab some strawberries and vodka (we ran out, and Hubby got the bourbon w/out replenishing the vodka supply). A weekend full of 36 visiting in-laws. You can imagine.
