The Fourth Fizz: A Cocktail to Show Off Your Red, White, and Blue

When we received these bright Icy-Cools Reusable Ice Cubes ($9) and red-and-white Kikkerland Biodegradable Paper Straws ($6), I sought out a clear cocktail with plenty of flavor that would highlight the festive red, white, and blue colors.

I came across the 1930s Pegu Club Cocktail from The Savoy Cocktail Book. The original cocktail contains orange curaçao and lime juice, but we substituted those ingredients with Dry Soda drinks, since they offer the essence of orange and lime flavors without using the juices, which would cloud the cocktail. "Fourth" plays off the Fourth of July holiday but also the four ingredients that make up the cocktail.

Wish you had a sparkler in hand this holiday? Twinkle with this cocktail instead.
