**This posts pictures have been updated & I wanted to share this amazing recipe with you all again too!**
Happy Fourth of July! A day to celebrate our Independence and wear, eat and drink Red, White & Blue! I have to say that I was excited when I found this cocktail online at the barnonedrinks website! I haven't had Hpnotiq is quite a few years and was excited to try it again. I was given a bottle by one of my husbands Best Men at our wedding and have liked it ever since.......but that was some years ago.
I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5. This is a very yummy cocktail! The citrus vodka blends very well with the Hpnotiq and sprite to give it a yummy citrusey flavor that goes down pretty smooth. This is a perfect way to celebrate the 4th surrounded by family, friends and cocktails! I hope you find a patriotic cocktail in color or name......or just a cocktail to celebrate our national holiday with today!
