It’s a 4th of July Happy Hour!

Hey everyone! We made it through another week and you know what that means? Another Happy Hour Cafe drink recipe! This drink is SUPER fun and very patriotic, just in time for the Fourth of July! YAY! With only 4 ingredients and a little spoon magic, you’ve got a beautiful and yummy layered drink to impress your friends at your holiday BBQ!

First, you want to use a small star cookie cutter and cut some stars out of a light colored fruit. I used a yellow watermelon, but you could use a pineapple, or skip all of these and use a star fruit! You don’t need to add the star to your drink, but it’s an added cute decoration AND it’s fruit! Fruit is healthy! 😉


In a glass full of ice add:

1 ounce raspberry or fruit flavored rum (you can also use white rum)
1/2 ounce of grenadine syrup


Slowly pour in 1 ounce of blue curacao on the back of spoon into the glass. This is lighter than the grenadine syrup, so it’ll float on top of the red layer. The spoon keeps it from splashing everywhere and mixing in with the red.


How pretty and patriotic is that?! Now, you can drink it like this, but it’s REALLY strong. With the fruit flavored rum, it’s also very sweet. To cut that and add a mixer, I recommend lemon lime soda, club soda or even flavored sparkling water. For example, I used a Lime sparkling water and it went perfectly with the fruity flavors in the drink!


This drink is so much fun! You can absolutely impress your friends with your awesome bartending skills and super Patriotism! 😉

For quick shots: add the rum & grenadine syrup to the bottom of a shot glass and then slowly layer your blue curacao on top. Boom!

As always, PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY and safely enjoy your Fourth of July holiday! For more recipes and coupons, head on over to!

Happy Fourth of July!!
