Stars Go Blue from Cadillac Ranch

Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week Jackalope Ranch brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe. This week: The Stars Go Blue at Cadillac Ranch.

The Stars Go Blue at Cadillac Ranch is a tribute to the ole red, white, and blue. Celebrate this 4th of July with a refreshing cocktail that combines rum, blue curaco and bright red maraschino cherries. It's sweet, fizzy and an ideal complement to sparklers and fireworks.

(recipe after the jump)

1 oz. Seagram's Raspberry Rum
1/2 oz. Hiram Walker Blue Curacao
1/4 oz. Daily's Triple Sec
1/4 oz. Sweet and Sour
Splash of Sprite
Maraschino cherries to garnish

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the rum, curacao, triple sec and sweet and sour mix. Shake to combine and strain into a glass filled with ice. Float Sprite on top of the bright blue mixture and top with a couple of maraschino cherries.

Our advice: mix up a batch of the first four ingredients for your Independence Day BBQ and add Sprite and cherry garnish to order.
