This red, white, and blue Patriotic Vodka Cocktail is a festive way to celebrate the Fourth of July or any day you’re feeling especially patriotic.

My brother is a bartender at a couple bars in Downtown Detroit. They’re very trendy spots so I was excited to visit him on our last date night.

We first stopped at a new restaurant but the drink menu didn’t have any vodka cocktails.

The second place was the same – no vodka. Third bar – same.

I get that I had a baby and don’t get out much anymore but when did Detroiters stop drinking vodka?? It’s all I drink.

Since 4th of July is right around the corner, I used vodka to make a fun red, white, and blue themed cocktail.

It’ll be perfect for your next BBQ or just the next time you feel like sitting on your back porch with a cold drink.

If you’re into shots, try my red white & blue jello shots!
