We have killer, festive 4th of July cocktails for you to pour at every BBQ, tailgate, fireworks fiesta and bonfire bonanza you attend this year.
Snow Cone Drinks
This drink is equal parts nostalgia and party-in-a-glass. Slightly on the sweeter side, we wouldn’t have too many or you can expect a killer hangover on the 5th.
- 1/2 oz grenadine
- 1 oz blue Curacao
- Finely crushed ice
• Heap cup with crushed ice, going above the top of the glass as the ice will melt quickly.
• Add in enough Sprite to fill most of the glass.
• Pour in the grenadine and let it settle at the bottom.
• Carefully pour the blue curacao over the top of the ice so that it does not completely sink and stays on top.

Pop-Rocked Rimmed Cocktails
Pop Rocks are like fireworks for your mouth, so what better way to sweeten and garnish that Independence Day cocktail. Add a little firecracker spark to your cocktails this summer! How? It’s easy! POP ROCKS! I used to love this candy as a kid. They make a crackle sound when they hit your tongue and come in a variety of colors and flavors.
1. Simply dampen the edges of your glass with lemon juice. If you have trouble with the pop rocks clumping or sticking, you can try dipping them in a thin layer of caramel (but only use a small amount).
2. Then dip the rims into a plate filled with the pop rocks of choice.We love the Tropical Blue color for a patriotic blue color that is perfect when paired with a cranberry cocktail for the 4th of July!
You can also simply drop the POP ROCKS into your cocktail for a festive FIZZLE!
