August means preseason football, and like any ex-jock it triggers memories of two a day practices and getting to strap on the pads and hit people. So this month’s drink involves Gatorade and is called The American.

Here is how you make it.

3 parts vodka
2 parts (blue) Gatorade
1 part Grenadine

Pour grenadine into glass, then vodka, then blue Gatorade. The parts will separate out. Enjoy!
