Celebrate the 4th with a Patriotic Cocktail

By bellalimento |

I recently shared 9 fantastic red, white & blue foods to celebrate the Fourth of July with you {everything from breakfast to appetizers to desserts}. I realized I didn’t have a beverage amongst the bunch {gasp} I needed to rectify that so we shook up a patriotic drink to go with all that festive food. I’m calling my patriotic cocktail an Uncle Sam-Tini. It’s fun, fruity and festive {and definitely red, white & blue}  You can also check out this additional slideshow for even more 4th of July Recipes

3. Place sugar onto a shallow dish. Remove glasses from freezer. Discard ice. Invert glasses, place into sugar dish and gently twist until you have created a sugar rim.
