Fun drinks recipes for your next party

The Merica

1.5 oz Vodka

1 oz lemon juice

1.5 oz. blue curacao

1 oz. grendadine

Splash of simple syrup


  1. Make simply syrup – All you do is take 1/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup of sugar in a sauce pan over medium heat – stir until all the sugar is dissolved. Take the saucepan off the heat. Allow the syrup to cool ( it is THAT simple)
  2. Making the drink – take a tall glass and fill with ice. Slowly add grenadine.
  3. Next add blue curacao – slowly – the weight of the liquid is different than the grenadine thus it floats on top.
  4. Next take a shaker – place ice lemon juice, simple syrup and vodka. Cover and shake. Slowly add to the glass.
  5. Garnish with a cherry on top if you like.
