The Buck Slap Cocktail

In honor of Independence Day tomorrow, here's a patriotic little cocktail that I'd like to dedicate to all of my #TeamBuck pals and our fearless leader, Buck Sexton. If you don't know of him, Buck is basically the spirit of America in human form so why wouldn't this week's cocktail be inspired by him?

What you'll need: Vodka (because Commie Bear wouldn't be pleased with anything else), your choice of either Sprite or Club soda, grenadine, and blueberries and blackberries. 

Begin by muddling some blackberries and a couple of blueberries in the bottom of a glass. If you don't happen to have a muddler, no need to fear! A wooden spoon works just as well for muddling berries. On top of the berry mixture, fill the glass 3/4 of the way with ice. Depending on your preference, add one part vodka to three parts club soda or one part vodka to three parts Sprite. Add a generous dash of grenadine and add a few extra blackberries to garnish. This drink is sure to be a crowd pleaser because who doesn't love a traditional vodka club or vodka Sprite?

Wishing you all a fun and safe Independence Day! Enjoy some fireworks and picnic food with friends and loved ones but also take a couple moments to reflect on American history and maybe even learn a little something new! If you're overseas, even though you won't be celebrating July 4th, this drink will more than likely be just as tasty for you. Enjoy!
