Food is great and all, but how do you really get the fireworks going this weekend? Cocktails! Here are some suggestions for celebrating the 4th of July with your glass half (or entirely) full:
Smash! If the name doesn’t already make you want to try this sparkly bourbon cocktail, the mint and blueberries might be your thing. A refreshing party in a glass.
If you prefer your bourbon a little less bubbly, try out this simple, slightly-sweet maple bourbon treat. Cheese tip: Pairs well with blue cheese!
Nothing truly says summer party more than a margarita—especially this stripped-down, four-ingredient version. Easy and delicious!
Fill your glass with bubbles and gin with this super simple spin on the classic gin and tonic.
Or maybe you need something a little tangy and creamy to keep you cool this 4th. The Nicolaki give you all that and more with a little Greek yogurt in this delightful vodka cocktail.
And of course, if you have one too many of the above mentioned cocktails, you’ll definitely want to wake up on the 5th with one of these hearty, spicy Bloody Marys.
But wait! You could also avoid the need for a recovery altogether and just stick with this light, summery mocktail. They might even help you remember the fireworks! Or you can just, you know, pour in your alcohol of choice…
