Whether or not you celebrate the Fourth of July, it’s a good excuse to indulge in a cocktail. Choosing Fourth of July drinks is easy: just pick drinks that are red, white or blue, perfect for barbecuing, and/or that have any kind of American history or theme to them.
All the ones listed below are exactly those kinds of drinks. They’ve got the patriotic colors. Some are named after US states.
Fourth of July Infusions
If none of these Fourth of July drinks are quite doing it for you, you can also create an infusion that’s red, white or blue. You could either serve it straight up or use it in cocktails to add some Fourth of July colors.
- Marshmallow Infused Vodka – infuse some vodka with marshmallow. This one tastes great – lightly sweet – straight up, or you can substitute it for vanilla vodka or Baileys in other recipes.
- Jolly Ranchers Vodka – this is the easiest way to create some red and blue flavored vodkas. The flavors will be cherry or Cinnamon Fire for the red, and raspberry for the blue.
