Svedka’s 4th of July Firecracker

Put your patriotism to the test with this layered red, white, and blue cocktail.

It’s the fourth of July and that only means one thing. 


Hot dog contests?

Ron Swanson?

Okay, yeah, yeah, but none of that means anything without one very important element of the day.

…Which brings us to Svedka‘s stackable Firecracker cocktail. Impress the ladies with this luscious treat and impress America with your colorful liquid stacking skills. 

SVEDKA’s 4th of July Firecracker


1 1/2 parts SVEDKA Stars & Stripes

1 part watermelon schnapps

1/2 part cranberry juice

1/2 part lemon juice

1/2 part simple syrup

1/4 part blue curaçao

Soda water


Build in the glass. Add watermelon schnapps and cranberry juice over ice, then carefully add lemon, simple syrup, and SVEDKA for the white layer, then VERY carefully layer the blue curacao to create the color separation, and gently top with soda. Garnish with fresh watermelon pieces.

Happy Independence Day, y’all!
