CAN I MAKE A PITCHER OF PATRIOTIC LEMONADE SHOOTERS?

Yes, you can make a pitcher of Patriotic Lemonade Shooters.

I suggest filling a pitcher half full with vodka and then with lemonade and some ice. 

CAN I USE COLORED SUGAR AROUND THE RIM INSTEAD OF SPRINKLES?

You can use colored sugar around the rim instead of sprinkles to decorate the shot glasses.

I suggest using red or blue-colored sugar for a patriotic look. You can also skip this step if you want.

The patriotic-inspired sprinkles add a special touch to this recipe. 

CAN I MAKE PATRIOTIC LEMONADE SHOOTERS AHEAD OF TIME?

I suggest making the drink and keeping it stored in a pitcher in your refrigerator and decorating the shot glasses and setting it aside.

WHAT GOES WELL WITH PATRIOTIC LEMONADE SHOOTERS?

Patriotic Lemonade Shooters go well with a wide variety of snacks and drinks. These recipes would be great to serve together at a 4th of July party.

Some of my personal favorites include:

CAN I USE ANOTHER LEMONADE INSTEAD OF CALYPSO LEMONADE?

Yes, you can use another lemonade in this recipe instead of Calypso lemonade. The steps will be pretty much the same.

Calypso lemonade gives these shots a unique taste but they’ll still taste great if you use a different brand of lemonade.

CAN I USE PLAIN VODKA INSTEAD OF RED, WHITE, AND BERRY VODKA?

You can use plain vodka instead of red, white, and berry-flavored vodka to make these shooters.

Red, white, and berry vodka has a cherry, citrus, and blue raspberry flavors all blended together that will add a fun taste to these shooters.

If you use plain vodka this recipe will not taste the same but it’ll still be great.

WHERE CAN I PURCHASE PATRIOTIC SPRINKLES?
