Ruby Slipper

Ruby Slipper
Here's a fun cocktail that has many variations.  And, as the name reflects the appearance more than any of it's ingredients, you should use what ever alcohol that you like.  Whiskey, Vodka, and Gin are some of the more popular choices.  Which ever you choose, you'll be sure to enjoy our "Cocktail of the Week", the Ruby Slipper. 
1.5 oz. Chilled Vodka (any flavor is fine)
.5 oz. Grenadine
6 oz. 7-Up or Sprite (diet is fine)
Pour the cold 7-Up into a Collins or Highball glass.  Pour the chilled Vodka into a 2 oz. shotglass (make sure the shot glass will easily fit into the bigger glass).  Top the shot glass with the Grenadine.  Drop the full shot glass into the middle of the Collins glass.  Almost immediately the drink turns ruby red and is ready to drink.  Some people like to chug it, I prefer to sip away.  Either way, you get a tasty drink that is simple to make and will have you thinking..."There's no place like home....".  Cheers!
