Red, White & Hpnotiq Blue Martini

Day 140

Red, White & Hpnotiq Blue Martini
4.5 shots out of 5

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!

Here is the recipe for a Red, White & Hpnotiq Blue Martini:

  • 2 oz Hpnotiq
  • 1 oz citrus vodka
  • 1/2 oz sprite (or any lemon/lime soda)
  • 1/4 oz grenadine
In a shaker add ice, Hpnotic, citrus vodka and sprite.  Shake it up well and strain it into a martini glass.  Pour your grenadine down the middle of your glass and enjoy!

Cheers to you Ed!  Thank You for introducing me to Hpnotiq on our camping trip all those years ago.  I think you would have liked this cocktail.

  1. What a sleek, pretty drink. I wonder if I can get a bartender to make this for me...
