Last week I shared a recipe for a cute red, white, and blue layered party punch for kids, and it was so popular that today I’m sharing another drink that’s just for grown ups!  It fits right in with the patriotic party theme for the upcoming 4th of July holiday, and I’ve got two versions for you: one for a casual cookout and another for a more formal get together.  They both have the same exact ingredients, they are just prepared a little differently.  Check out the recipe below!Red White and Blue Party Foods | Party Punch and Martinis

***Tip – If you pour the grenadine into the martini glass too quickly, it will just mix with the vodka.  You MUST pour it slowly down the side of the glass for it to layer properly.

This drink is just as delicious with rum or a silver tequila, I’m just a vodka kind of gal. 😉  You could also you a different flavor of sparkling water if you like, but trust me, the mandarin orange is really tasty!Red White & Blue Martinis and Parent Party Punch

Having lots of people over?  Make a whole pitcher!  You can premix all of it without ice for the punch, or just premix the vodka and sparkling water to prep for the martinis.  Blueberry skewers can be made in advance as well.  Just remember to keep it out of the reach of kiddos, it’s colorful and fun, and they’ll be tempted to take a sip!
