Happy Birthday, America! Celebrate Independence Day, with these colorful and fun, red, white and blue daiquiris.
Remember: Spec’s is open on July 4th— Because sometimes the cooler gets sparse and the party needs a hero to go on a supply run!
- 2 tbsp white rum, we recommend Caliche
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 cup watermelon chunks, frozen
- 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 1 cup coconut sorbet
- 1/4 cup rum
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 1/3 cup blue passion fruit liqueur, such as Hpnotiq
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 2 tbsp blue curacao liqueur
- 2 tbsp white rum
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 cups ice cubes
1: Start by making the red layer: Place strawberries, watermelon, lime juice, rum, sugar and ice in the blender. Blend until thick and smooth. Stir in 1 to 2 tbsp water if the consistency is too thick. Transfer to a large measuring cup or small bowl and place in the freezer while you make the next layer.
2: To make the white layer: Rinse blender. Add coconut sorbet, rum, lime juice and ice. Blend until thick and smooth. Transfer to another large measuring cup or small bowl and place in the freezer. Now it’s time to make the final layer!
3: For the blue layer: Rinse out the blender and add the passion fruit liqueur, lime juice, blue curacao, rum, sugar and ice cubes. Blend until slushy and there are no chunks of ice left.
4: Pour the red layer into the bottom of six 8-oz glasses, about 1/3 cup each. Gently spoon 1/3 cup of the white layer over the red layer so they stay separate. Finish by spooning 1/3 cup of the blue layer over the second layer in each glass.
That’s it, party patriots!
