Red, White & Yum: Fourth of July Cocktail


Are you daydreaming about 5 o’clock like we are? Kick off your Fourth of July with this refreshing and unexpected cocktail by Guy Fieri of Food Network. There are summer elements of sweet watermelon and cranberry, and a hint of a kick from a jalapeno!

What You’ll Need

  • 1 ounce watermelon schnapps
  • 1 big splash cranberry juice
  • 1 very thin slice jalapeno or serrano pepper
  • 1 slice lemon
  • 1 slice lime
  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila
  • 1/4 ounce blue curacao
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • Watermelon wedge, for garnish (optional)


Mix the schnapps and cranberry juice in a shaker; pour into an ice-filled glass.

Muddle the jalapeno pepper, lemon and lime slices, tequila, blue curacao and simple syrup (to make a batch, dissolve sugar in equal parts hot water and chill) in the shaker. Slowly strain into the glass over the red layer. Garnish with watermelon, if desired.
