Fourth of July Drink Recipe | Skimm Picks | theSkimm

The Fourth of July is around the corner and we’re raising a glass to better bartending skills. Enter, the GREY GOOSE® Bucket List. It's a cocktail that uses spices and herbs to toast to the red, white, and booze.

It starts with a fancy glass and gets more extra from there.

What you need:

  • Coupette (aka a rounded version of the martini cocktail glass)
  • 30 ml GREY GOOSE Vodka
  • 20 ml French Genepi (rebel see, rebel do)
  • 15 ml fresh lemon juice
  • 20 ml honey syrup (pro tip: shopping organic and local may help with seasonal allergies)
  • A few drops of cardamom extract
  • Rosemary sprig

What you need to do:

  • Add spirits, juice, and syrup to a cocktail shaker
  • Shake and strain into a coupette
  • Garnish with a rosemary sprig
