Fantastic Patriotic Martini For 4th of July

Milena Kukurekovic


America's birthday is just days away... The Fourth of July is the premier American summer holiday, and the day is filled with family, friends, fun, food, and fireworks. Therefore, Smarty has prepared an awesome party idea 4 all you Smarties on the 4th of July. Yea, we're having fun with this whole '4' thing. Now, drumroll, please...

The first is about to be revealed! Who would have thought Independence Day tasted this good? The blue and red layers kind of scared me at first, mostly because I am in no way adept in the kitchen. But, when I finally decided to give it a try, I found it's actually quite simple. So, the Smarty NYC marketing team decided to serve these festive drinks at an office cocktail party in honor of the upcoming July 4th. So what better way to celebrate our great nation than with an ice-cold celebratory drink in hand? It's never to early to start celebrating, right? Obviously, I had to share the recipe with all you awesome Smarties. 

Cheers Smarties!



  • 2 oz hypnotiq
  • 1 oz citrus vodka
  • about a tbsp lemon lime soda
  • Grenadine



    1. Shake the Hypnotiq, citrus vodka, and lemon-lime soda with ice.
    2. Strain into a martini glass.
    3. Very slowly, pour in a little grenadine. (Slow is the key to making the layers).


I wish you all could have crashed the party, but they say imitation is the highest form of flattery, so let loose, and have your own office cocktail party! We promise your colleagues will love you. You can get classy martini glasses and super cute red, white, and blue napkins. Make sure to post pics from your cocktail parties on the Smarty Facebook page! Or you can even send us an invite. ;) P.s. These drinks are for the sugar lovers out there. They're super sweet.


Party on, Smarties! With love Smarty had a Party!
