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.
PATRIOTIC VODKA COCKTAIL
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!

We haven’t been to Chicago in a couple years but it’s only a four hour drive so CH Distillery is on my next Chicago to-do list.
