Some may remember this drink from its last appearance on the Elixir Menu a few years ago, or perhaps you remember it from the 2008 Election Night party. If you haven't had the chance, you really must try this drink. It's essentially a delicious, boozy sangria. It's also gorgeous. Look at that:
If you want to be like our roommates and host a your own Fourth of July party, you can try to make this at home. It's easy to make, and it's far easier than whatever sangria recipe they tried. Heads up, though, it's a strong one. Here's the recipe for the Red, White, and Night:
1.5 oz vodka
1 oz red wine
.75 oz lemon
.75 oz simple syrup
Garnish with powdered sugar-dusted blueberries.
Shake with ice, pour into a collins glass over ice.
