- Throw in some ice, top with a cherry, and this beautiful blue cocktail becomes a patriotic treat. It’s easy to make and also delicious, with flavors of citrus and peach. For each cocktail, mix an ounce each of blue curacao, peach schnapps, and clear rum. Pour over ice, top with three to four ounces of club soda, and top with a maraschino cherry.
- Is there anything more refreshing in summer than sangria? While it may not have its origins in the states, it’s still one of the best 4th of July alcoholic punch recipes out there. To make it, combine in a pitcher a lemon, orange, peach, and ripe green apple, sliced, with ¼ cup Brandy, and ¼ cup triple sec. Add a 750ml bottle of Riunite Lambrusco, ½ cup of orange juice, and a can of lemon-lime soda, and enjoy!
- Red, White, and ‘Shine is easy to make. What’s more American than moonshine? And this cocktail is super easy. Just mix two parts Owl’s Brew White Tea, Watermelon, and Raspberry Boozy Tea with one part Moonshine, shake with ice, and garnish with lemon wheels and mint.
- The Spirit of Americana Swizzle is a little bit trickier, but it’s worth it. We think you’ll agree that this is one of the best July cocktails out there. To make it, toss a handful of blueberries into a Collins glass and muddle slightly. Measure in ¾ ounce of lemon juice, ¾ ounce of honey syrup (2 parts honey, 1 part water), and 2 ounces of Laird’s Applejack. Add pellet ice to just below the rim and stir before putting in 7 dashes of Peychaud Bitters and 3 dashes of Angostura Bitters. Top with pellet ice for a snow cone top and garnish with blueberries and mint.
