Fourth of July Drink Recipe: Frozen Firecracker (& Patriotic Deviled Eggs!)

Fourth of July Drink Recipe: Frozen Firecracker (& Patriotic Deviled Eggs!)

My husband is so incredibly talented when it comes to cooking and making drinks; it’s unbelievable! Blame it on his chemistry background, the man’s a pro when it comes to mixing and matching ingredients and creating the perfect concoction! Keep reading to find out how we put together this super tasty frozen drink that you could be sippin’ on today during your festivities! 

The Frozen Firecracker

~ Ingredients ~

1 1/2 Oz. Vanilla Vodka

3 Oz. Chilled Pineapple Juice

1/2 Oz. Grenadine

1/2 Oz. Blue Curacao

Ice

 

Hey everyone! When I put together this recipe I wanted it to be delicious and super simple to make. We all love frozen drinks by the pool, and now that it’s summer they’re almost a necessity to keep cool! The amounts for this recipe are for one drink, but feel free to scale this up to an entire pitcher full of frozen goodness. Follow along to make your own Frozen Firecracker:

 

Start by blending the vodka, pineapple juice, and ice together. Really let it get good and smooth…no one wants to encounter an unexpected iceberg, just ask the Titanic (too soon?). When it’s good and blended pour one third into the glass, add the blue curacao, and mix to create the blue layer. Pour the next third on top of it for the white layer. Finally mix the final third with the grenadine in the blender pitcher to create the red layer. If you’re making a ton of this drink for a party you could even make entire pitchers full of each layer to save time!

 

Aaaaaand that’s it. Seriously. It’s delicious, it’s simple, and it’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser at your holiday cookout. Blend up a few batches today and enjoy! Happy 4th of July, everyone!


Fourth of July Drink Recipe: Frozen Firecracker (& Patriotic Deviled Eggs!)

It’s so tasty, guys! Give it a whirl and let us know what you think! I’m diggin’ the pineapple flavor! Anyways, my brother’s birthday is today and we’re going over to he and his wife’s house to celebrate, so we found an awesome recipe for patriotic deviled eggs from Created by Diane.

First, we boiled the eggs then let them sit for about 15 minutes in cold water (we changed out the boiling water). We then peeled them and made two separate bowls for dyeing– each with a teaspoon of gel food coloring and a teaspoon of vinegar. We let them sit open-side-up in the dyed water for about 5 minutes, then flipped them on the other side for another 5.

The next part got a little less glamorous (to say the least). We were all like “perfect, we nailed the colored part, let’s go nuts and try to get out our cupcake frosting nozzles and make the yolk part look awesome too!”. Well, here’s the thing–we’re far from a pair of Martha Stewarts in this house, but we also have a problem giving up on stuff.

You could just imagine how much yolk filling we wasted going from bag to bag trying to get the piping to work (at one point we even Googled how to make a piping contraption out of parchment paper…what?! And p.s. kudos to all of you who can actually do this because it is ******* hard)

Bottom line, we ended up saying screw it and added the yolk filling in the traditional way with a butter knife (I know, we’re classy). We then put a sprinkle of smoked paprika on the top and added some chives as well. Yes, Nate ended up shooting literally the only egg that turned out well with the piping so we can kind of look like we know what we’re doing. We’re so proud of that little egg, I’m not going to let anyone eat it (jokes).
