Red, White & Blueberry - A Festive Summer Drink Inspired by the Holiday

The 4th of July has come and gone, but we have a surefire way to keep the celebration going all July-long. What better way to kick back with family and friends than with a drink in hand. If you're looking for something fun, festive and new to try out this year, give our "Red, White & Blueberry," a sip! Specially created by SKY Bar Manager, Brian.


1 1/2 oz. Real McCoy white rum

4 oz Sprite

2 blueberry ice cubes

1 watermelon ice cube

To make blueberry ice cubes:

- In a saucepan, combine 1 cup fresh blueberries, 1 cup water, and 1 tsp fresh lemon juice

- Heat on low for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally

- Bring heat up to medium-high; maintain a light boil for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally

- Remove from heat and allow to cool

- Strain mixture through a fine sieve to get the juice separated from the pulp (a ladle typically works best for pushing the juice through)

- Pour the juice into Perfect Cube ice trays, adding a whole blueberry to each

- Freeze until firm (~5 hours)

To make watermelon ice cubes:

- Puree 1/2 fresh watermelon in a blender until smooth

- Pour into Perfect Cube ice trays

- Freeze until firm (~5 hours)

To make cocktail:

- In a Collins glass, stack a watermelon cube between two blueberry cubes

- Fill glass with rum and Sprite

- Enjoy!

As you enjoy this drink and the cubes melt, the flavor profiles will change noticeably. It's a great way to cool down in the hot weather out by the pool or lake. From the SKY team, we hope you had a safe and relaxing holiday!
