Last Minute 4th of July CocktailsMacki West
Happy 4th of July! Time to get your celebratory drink on. If you’ve been busy planning your party and food and games and getting those last minute fireworks, then ooops, what are the adults going to drink. Have no fear, here are five 4th of July inspired cocktails that are sure to please.
Uncle Sam-Tinis 1 of 5It's a martini with a patriotic twist! This recipe calls for the blue tint of Dekuyper's Island Punch Pucker, cointreau, and lemon vodka. Sounds like a firecracker of a drink to me!

Fourth Of July Red, White, & Blue Sauza Margarita 2 of 5This drink may have originated south of the border, but I love a good margarita and am willing to serve this for my 4th of July BBQ. I don't think I will have any complaints considering it's got cranberry, mint, tequila and lemon lime soda.

Berry Ice Is So Nice 3 of 5These berry ice cubes are such an easy way to add some color and fun to your drink. Pop these in the freezer now and they will be ready to dress up your cocktail this afternoon.

Pop Rockin’ Red White And Blue Cocktail 4 of 5If pop rocks are not easily accessible, just add a drop of blue food coloring to some sugar and use that around the rim. The pop rocks or sugar can also be used for the non alcoholic drinks to give the kids something special.

4th Of July Punch 5 of 5This drink may look like champagne, but's it's got more flavor and kick with vodka, cranberry, pineapple and ginger ale. I've never tried this combo, but I'm craving it now.
