Looking to jazz up your cookout? Try these 4th of July cocktails and celebrate our Independence.
The 4th of July is guaranteed to be a scorcher. Cool off with red, white, and blue frozen daquiris. Layer watermelon, blue raspberry, and pina colada and enjoy. Bonus! These are easily made without alcohol for the kiddos celebrating, just serve in different glasses to avoid confusion.
Adding grenadine or blue curacao adds a colorful twist on an old classic. For a little extra pizazz, shake with lemon-lime soda before pouring, or garnish with fruit or colored sugar.
This mocktail from @recipegirl is made with low-sugar blue Gatorade, cran-apple juice, and Sobe pina colada. Cran-apple on the bottom!
These layered shots make great party treats! Blue Curacao, Malibu Rum, and Campari layer beautifully. (Highest sugar content goes on bottom!)

Use Pop Rocks to line the rims of your cocktail glasses to give your guests some fireworks with every sip!
Mix up a pitcher of white sangria and add red and blue fruit, and pineapple stars, to give your beverages a patriotic vibe. (h/t @recipegirl)
