This apple and peach-sweetened version of a Cape Cod cocktail called the Jolly Rancher is perfect for summertime cookouts, out by the pool, or cruising on a boat.
But best of all, as you celebrate the 4th of July, the red color of Jolly Rancher perfectly aligns with the red, white, and blue trio: Jolly Rancher, Creamy Coconut Mojito, and License to Chill. Try them all; you will love them.

Bar Tools that you’ll need to make a Jolly Rancher cocktail
Here is an awesome product to help YOU make the most incredible drinks. Impress your family and friends and be the BEST Cocktail Barista in your neighborhood.
Martini or cocktail, I find that a good shake makes all the difference in the world. I have at least a dozen shakers, but one favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak; you won’t have to hit the shaker against the sink to get the top off, and the cap will measure from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces with clearly marked labels. Measure the perfect amount every time. And it is dishwasher safe!
Take this drink outside and enjoy the beautiful summer weather. But don’t bring glass on the boat or by the pool. Try these 20-ounce acrylic glasses (shown below). They are perfect for any outdoor occasion. Remember to put a ‘double’ 2 portions of the Jolly Rancher in the 20-ounce glass. And add lots of ice! If you want a single serving, the 15-ounce acrylic glasses in the photo above are a better choice.
