The Rouge, White, and Blue cocktail.

Made at Bar Rouge in Washington D.C., bar manager Rico Wisner chose hibiscus grenadine, white peach puree and Bluecoat Gin to pay homage to the colors of the American flag, while still creating a refreshing summertime drink. (Fun fact: Bluecoat Gin is also made in Philly, as an American take on the traditional “redcoat” London dry gin.) We recommend lots of loud "USA!" cheers to go with this spirited drink.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
