red white blue cocktailFor your Fourth of July celebrations, here’ s a cocktail that’s actually red, white, and blue. You’ll need to layer the red and blue parts carefully, but the stunning visual presentation is worth it.  (The white section — the ice — is easier, of course.) The combination of watermelon schnapps, cranberry juice, blue curacao, tequila, and hot pepper is one you most likely haven’t tasted before, either. This all-American drink comes from the Hide Away Country Inn in Bucyrus, Ohio, with its six acres of landscaped grounds, specializing in weddings but also a great place for a corporate retreat or private getaway.
