Come Party With Me: 4th Of July - Drinks

4th of July is a holiday that's all about bbq, so plan on most guests drinking a lot of beer. Keep things simple by making a big batch of one cocktail and offer beer and wine to guests. Choose a light red or well bodied white to wine to pair with the ribs. Don't forget to get a lot of ice to ensure that drinks remain cool. Fill one cooler with alcoholic drinks and fill another water, sparkling juices, and sodas. Pitchers of iced tea or lemonade are ideal to quench party thirst. A bright, colorful drink that matches the theme of your party is a great way to enhance the look of your event (if you are into shooters, layer grenadine, vodka, and blue curaco in a shot glass for a patriotic shot). Or serve a vibrant red cocktail that's like a snow cone for adults. Refreshing and icy with fragrant raspberry taste, take a look at my 4th of July cocktail recipe and drool, just
