RECIPE: RED, WHITE & BLUE STRIPED (LAYERED) COCKTAIL

½ part cranberry juice
½ part fresh lemon juice
½ part simple syrup

1. BUILD the drink in a rocks glass. Create the red layer by adding watermelon schnapps and cranberry juice over ice (or no ice, if a shot).
2. CREATE the white layer: Carefully add the lemon juice, simple syrup and vodka.
