The Most Festive Fourth of July Drinks
Is there anything better than basking in the summer sun with a refreshing drink—alcoholic or otherwise—in hand? Whether you're doing so with a toe dipped in an inflatable pool or while lounging in the backyard during a cookout with friends, it's what summer dreams are made of.
And because the Fourth of July should be the ultimate day for warm weather indulgences, we've rounded up the best red, white, and blue cocktails for your festivities. From frozen blue bevs topped with cherries, to big-batch rum punches, and tequila-laden watermelon margaritas, there's an array of patriotic spirits for every taste bud. There's even a few special treats, like Prosecco-infused ice pops and Americana-inspired shooters in the mix, plus refreshers like non-alcoholic strawberry and vinegar shrubs for those who prefer a mocktail.
So turn up the 4th of July tunes, throw your barbecue fare on the grill, pour yourself a tall one, and then sit back and enjoy whatever fun, easy-breezy Fourth of July activity you have planned for the weekend. (And, yes, relaxing with nothing on the agenda totally counts as an activity, if you ask us.)
A few red, white, and, err, boozy options.
