Must-Have 4th of July Drinks
With everybody in the mood to raise a glass to the US of A, here are a few red, white, and blue 4th of July drinks you can throw together.
Every kid on the 4th of July looks forward to the watermelon, and with this recipe, the adults can too! Watermelon margaritas require a little love in their multi-step preparation, but the result is a refreshing drink that is bound to be a hit. Check out the full recipe here, and don’t be afraid to pair the margaritas with a little bit of fresh fruit too.
Who doesn’t love a tropical piña colada on a hot summer's’ day? Or maybe the rain hits you and you just need a reminder of a day on the beach. No matter how or where you’re celebrating with your 4th of July drinks, a few piña coladas for you and your friends can go a long way. Follow the recipe closely to ensure the perfect ratio of ice, juice, and booze. If you really want to emphasize your summer escape, get some tropical umbrellas or maraschino cherries to throw on the glass.
This recipe uses Blue Curacao to create a refreshing spiked lemonade that takes no time to put together, so you can keep on pushing it out! The distinct blue color will stand out and have you thinking of the ocean, even in the most remote backyards. You can put it together in large batches if you wish, and add a festive flare with some American flag skewers to finish the drink off.
Supplies You Need for Your 4th of July Drinks
So you might have all the booze and rimmers for your 4th of July drinks, but you’ll need some nice glassware next to serve it all up!
When you’ve got a lot of people to serve, you need a large mixing pitcher to get everything together. GlassblowerBen’s Mixing Pitcher comes with a matching mixing stick to easily stir and keep stirring your favorite homemade cocktails. Each one can be customized when you order, so you can show off your patriotism with a “USA” if you’d like (but your last name, nickname, and so many other custom words work, too).
Try out GlassblowerBen’s signature hand blown glass for all these homemade cocktails. The large rim is perfect for a salt rim or to fit a cocktail umbrella so you can easily serve up all your festive favorites! These are also customizable, so you can get whatever short message or a variety of symbols at the bottom for all your guests to admire.
