American Dream Cocktail Recipe

An American dream cocktail is a fun and tasty patriotic cocktail that works well for any American-themed occasion like the Fourth of July. I created this cocktail, created by Master Mixologist Bridget Albert, author of “Market-Fresh Mixology.” It has pomegranate and cherry flavors, as well as black cherry rum and Pama Liqueur. Despite the beauty of this dessert, the real magic is in the fondant, which you can purchase from cake or candy suppliers. To strain the drink, the candy paste of miniature stars is applied to the glass inside before squeezing it. With this invention, you can create a fun, star-studded presentation that can be used with any red or blue cocktail.
