Firework Sky Coffee

White chocolate fourth of July coffee delight!

Red white and blue swirled cream topped coffee in a china cup on a saucer.


The fourth of July is nearly upon us and we all know what that means. Everything you can possibly think of is colored red white and blue which means for people who like to play around in the kitchen, I mean create recipes. :) Those people get to use food coloring galore. Yes!!!

I was trying to broaden my coffee flavors and decided that I wanted to make it fun and match fourth of July colors. It makes that little morning cup of coffee extra special with a pop of cherry colors to start your day. I hope you try it and enjoy it. Especially on the fourth!


6 oz. vanilla coffee (I like Community Coffee brand.)

2 oz cold milk

3 tsp. white chocolate syrup. (Torani is a tasty brand.)

3 tsp. sugar

4 Tbsp. heavy cream

Red and Blue food coloring to color the cream

I use the Watkins food coloring with no artificial dyes it gives a good color without all the chemicals of regular food coloring.


Brew your coffee and place in a cup. I like to use a tea cup it makes it makes it more special. Then pour the milk into the coffee. Put the the syrup and sugar into the milk coffee mixture and stir until all of the sugar is dissolved. Now comes the fun part, divide the heavy cream into two small glasses. In one of the glasses put 4 drops of red food coloring, and in the other glass put 4 drops of blue food coloring. Stir both of the glasses so that the coloring is completely mixed. Now slowly drizzle the blue cream over the coffee. It will start to sink but just give it a moment and it will rise to the top. Pour the red cream around the blue spots of cream. Finally take a toothpick and gently swirl the colors just ever so slightly. Be careful not to mix to much of you will have purple cream. Now your coffee is ready and colored for the fourth. I hope you enjoy this tasty treat.



This coffee is not meant to be hot it is more of a room temperature because of the milk. If you want it colder you can pour the coffee milk base into a blender with four ice cubes and blend it.
