We, the people of Vibrantsloth.com are not Americans ourselves, but we still love summer, fireworks, and grilling burgers in the backyard. Did we forget to mention cocktails? Sloth also loves cocktails. Here, we said it.
Keep on reading to get a taste of some of the most fabulous cocktails to come in red, white, and blue.
1. Boozy Red, White, and Blue Snowcones
Snow cones used to be THE thing in the summers a decade or more ago, wasn’t it so? Sloth assures you that you don’t have to be a kid to have a go at those good old snow cones. All you have to assemble is some ice, sugar, rum, blue curacao, strawberries, and lime. Mere 15 minutes of your time and you’re ready to let it snow, let it snow, let it snow… Want to try it for yourself? Clinton Kelly has written down a detailed recipe. Find it HERE.
2. Red White and Blue Strawberry Jello Shots
