Celebrate Independence Day this year with a bespoke cocktail from your favorite spirits:

 

Fistful of 4th Pops 

Created by Anthony Bohlinger, National Fistful of Bourbon Brand Ambassador

Ingredients:

  • Strawberry Top
    • 2 cup Diced Strawberries
    • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
    • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • Colada Center
    • 1 ½ cups of fresh pineapple cubes
    • 1 cup unsweetened coconut cream
    • ¼ cup granulated sugar
    • 1 part Fistful of Bourbon
    • 1 ½ Teaspoons Fresh lime Juice
    • ¼ Teaspoon kosher salt
  • Blueberry Base
  • 2 cups Blueberries
  • 1/4 cup Granulated sugar
  • ½ cup Greek Yogurt

Method: Makes 12 popsicles. For each flavor section, add all ingredients in a blender & puree. Fill popsicle molds ¼ full with strawberry blend and freeze for 1 hour. Take colada mix and fill popsicle molds ¾ full and freeze for 1 hour. Add the blueberry mix and insert popsicle base and freeze for one hour. Finish with lime zest over the whole popsicle.

 

 

The Glenfiddich Highland Cooler 

Created by Allan Roth, Glenfiddich Brand Ambassador

Ingredients:

  • 1 part Glenfiddich 14 Year Old Bourbon Barrel Reserve 
  • 5 parts Watermelon Juice 
  • Garnish: Watermelon & Mint 

Method: This might be one of the simplest, and most delicious, drinks you can make on the 4th of July.  Simply cool the juice (pureed fruit) of a ripe, seedless watermelon, and mix it five to one with Glenfiddich 14 Year Bourbon Barrel Reserve.  Pour into a highball or rocks glass and garnish with a small watermelon wedge and some mint.  

 

For extra credit, stick the 5:1 mixture in the freezer.  Once it’s set, scrape it out with a fork to create a delicious watermelon Glenfiddich snow cone.
