4th of July Drink Inspiration

Need a little drink inspiration for your 4th of July celebration?

How about this fun and festive cocktail idea...

Roman Candle


3 oz. Three-O Berry Vodka
½ oz. Cranberry Juice
Dash of Grenadine
½ oz. Blue Curacao


Shake vodka, cranberry juice and grenadine in a shaker with ice. Strain into martini glass. Pour Blue CuraƧao gently down the side of the glass so it comes to settle on the bottom.

Or how about Sangria, (because you can never go wrong with wine!)

Red, White, and Blue Sangria


Strawberries, sliced
Pineapple, cut into star shapes
2 bottles dry white wine
1 cup Triple Sec
1/2 Cup berry-flavored vodka
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup simple syrup

Combine the ingredients in a large pitcher and stir. Chill in the refridgerator for at least four hours.

Whatever you choose, the most important thing is to be safe and have fun!
