Yolo Red, White & Blue Cocktial Recipe

Americans show their pride and patriotism in wildly unique ways. A master mixologist created this recipe just for Yolo Rum. It should be shared and enjoyed while celebrating your own special brand of patriotism. So get your flag shirt, face paint, and celebrate with a tall, refreshing Yolo Red, White & Blue cocktail; you’ll be glad you did!


  • A tall glass of ice
  • 2 oz. Yolo Rum Silver
  • 3 oz. Pomegranate juice with tablespoon of sugar
  • 3 oz. Blue Curacao syrup
  • 2 or 3 Cherries for garnish
  • 1 Fun colored straw


Fill your 8-10 ounce glass completely full to the top with cubed or crushed ice. Next, mix your strained pomegranate juice with a tablespoon of sugar and stir vigorously until well blended. Add two ounces to your glass of ice. Now it’s time for the fun part, rum! Carefully pour Yolo Silver Rum into the glass using a spoon to disperse it without mixing with the red pomegranate mix. Next, it’s time for the Blue Curacao syrup. Again, using a spoon to pour it into the glass without thoroughly mixing it into the liquid below, leaving a distinct line between the red, white, and blue mixes. Finally, add a few pitted cherries and a fun straw, and you’re ready to enjoy this patriotic cocktail. Enjoy!
