Firecracker Spritzer

Here we are.'s July.

Have I got a fun layered 4th of July cocktail for you!

I call it, Firecracker Spritzer.

I knew I wanted to create a layered cocktail for you all for the 4th.....partly because I THINK THEY'RE SUUUPER FUN TO MAKE.  Partly because I enjoy making holiday cocktails.....and honestly partly because I haven't made a new cocktail in a while.

The Firecracker Spritzer is a very easy to make cocktail.  I promise.

The layering isn't that hard, mostly because grenadine is pretty much heavy enough to sink to the bottom of any cocktail.

Isn't it a pretty cocktail?!?!

I loooove the layered effect.

First things first.  Grenadine.

Next ice.

Followed by lemon-lime soda.

Lastly the blue layer.

See, I told you it wasn't hard!

Look how pretty it looks!!
