Independence Day is a celebration that is best spent at an outdoor barbeque complete with patriotic beverages that offer a refreshing way to beat the heat of summer. With some easy cocktail recipes, you can mix your spirits like a pro and be the hit of your neighborhood at this year’s 4th of July party.
Here are some great drinks that you might consider incorporating into your summertime festivities.
- Blueberry Mojito: The colors of the flag are great inspiration for your cocktail selection, and blue can be found in this refreshing twist on a favorite trendy drink. To prepare it, muddle some blueberries, mint, and sugar and partner them with your favorite clear rum, limes, and a splash of sparkling water. The muddled blueberries will provide a delightful blue hue to the beverage.
- Strawberry Margaritas: Strawberries are sweet and fresh in the summertime, so why not showcase their bright red beauty in a blended margarita? If you freeze fresh berries, you can substitute them for ice so that your drink is chilled to perfection.
- Bourbon and Ginger: Drink an all-American spirit with a sweet edge by mixing your favorite Kentucky Bourbon with a splash of ginger ale. If you want a more pure bourbon flavor, try a splash of sparkling water instead.
- Craft Beers: With a new American revival of microbreweries crafting some of the world’s tastiest beers, there is no better way to show off your patriotism than by trying some brews that have been imported directly from your neighborhood. Keep some chilled glasses on hand and stock your cooler full of a variety of beers for the ultimate cookout refreshment.
