INGREDIENTS:

2 oz. VEEV Lemonade

1/2 oz. Grenadine

1 oz. Sour Mix

Splash of 7up

Splash of Blue Curaçao

2-3 Lemon Slices

PREPARATION:

Muddle lemons and then strain juice and pulp into another glass. NO SEEDS! Mix and chill you’re VEEV Lemonade, sour mix, and 7up. Coat rim of a martini glass with sugar, and pour your grenadine straight into the bottom of your glass. Next, float your VEEV mixture on top of the grenadine. Present your martini to the customer and then splash in a couple drops of blue curaçao and watch as it settles in the middle to give you a red white and blue striped martini.

GARNISH:

Lemon and Cherry

GLASSWARE:

Martini Glass

INSPIRATION:

It was a really hot day and a customer wanted some lemonade. Unfortunately, we didn’t have any so I told them that I could make a chilled lemon flavored cocktail. I decided I wanted to make a better flavored lemonade so I added the grenadine. After seeing the red and white, right off the bat I knew it was missing the blue. Without hesitation I threw some blue curaçao in there and when it settled and made a perfect stripe, I knew I found my new custom martini!
