4th of July Cocktail Ideas

Drink up your red, white and blue this 4th with some fresh cocktail inspiration from our recipe library.  We love layered shots, sparkler garnishes and your favorite summer berries for celebrating Independence Day in a glass.

Have you ever tried making a layered drink?  Give it a try with one of these festive flag-inspired cocktails! They're a lot easier to make than they look, and worst case scenario here you end up with something purple.  Here's the trick: pour in order from heaviest to lightest (our layered recipes will let you know the order), and pour slowly over a spoon.
