How to Throw the Perfect 4th of July Rooftop BBQ

Pursue your own ‘AMERICAN DREAM’ with a rooftop barbecue, a SVEDKA signature cocktail, and a party-ready playlist.

Fireworks, BBQs and booze…the 4th of July is almost here! Heat up the grill, light some citronella candles and get up on the rooftop for a prime view of the fireworks. Craft a batch of SVEDKA’s American Dream Punch (a distinctive mix of vodka, curaçao, blackberries and mint) to serve to rooftop attendees all night long. Add some festive flair to the affair with SVEDKA’s dazzling party edition bottle.




  • 2 parts SVEDKA Vodka
  • ½ part Orange Curaçao
  • ½ part simple syrup
  • 1 part fresh lime juice
  • dash of grenadine


Combine ingredients in a pitcher and top with ice. Garnish with blackberries and mint. Easy as American pie.

If there’s a mixologist on the roof (and, if you’re in Brooklyn, there probably is) try your hand at the Suddenly Summer, a layered mix of watermelon schnapps, vodka and blue curaçao.



  • 1½ parts SVEDKA Vodka
  • 1 part watermelon schnapps
  • ½ part cranberry juice
  • ½ part fresh lemon juice
  • ½ part simple syrup
  • ¼ part Blue Curacao
  • Club soda


Build in a rocks glass. Add watermelon schnapps, and cranberry juice over ice, then carefully add lemon, simple syrup, and SVEDKA Vodka as to layer the white layer, then VERY carefully layer the blue curacao to create the color separation, and gently top with soda. Garnish with fresh watermelon pieces.

Kick back, relax, and wait for the fireworks to litter the sky.
