Patriotic Cocktails for the 4th of July

Patriotic Cocktails
For The 4th Of July

This past weekend was amazing!  

We had our family reunion which brought family in from all over the states.  

My grandma is 1 of 9 children, so you can only image the amount of people we can get at these reunions.  

The weather was perfect which brought us all to the pool for a great time.  There was laughing, singing, dancing and LOTS and LOTS of drinking!  

Our family is kind of known for the way we can put back a few so as you can imaging the laughing, singing and dancing only got better at the days went by.

The weather this past weekend reminds me of how hot it gets for the 4th of July.  With that holiday just around the corner, I wanted to share with you some of my Patriotic Cocktail I've made over the years.

This shooter I made 4 years ago!  It's kind of amazing to think that I have been blogging for over 4 years.  Crazy actually!  Here is my Red White & Blue Shooter.

I initially made this fun cocktail 4 years ago, but felt the need to share it with you all again not too long ago.  

This one is called Red White & Hpnotiq Blue Martini.  Just looking at the picture now makes me want to go out and buy a bottle of Hpnotiq,mmmmm.

This next shooter I made 3 years ago.  When I think of home cooking and America, I think of my grandma's apple pies.  This Apple Pie shooter is very delicious and simple to make.

Next up is a milkshake I made 3 years ago.  

This one I call Memorial Milkshake.  It is the perfect cocktail to make on a nice hot day.

This fun cocktail I also made 3 years ago.  

When I initially was trying to make this cocktail I was completely going for a blue cocktail.  Apparently that didn't go too well and it turned out purple, but hey, purples a great color too!  Here is my Purple Independence.

Onto another fun layered cocktail that I made 2 years ago.  This cocktail, Patriotic Celebration, was fun to make and equally fun to look at.  It's was quite tasty and very patriotic looking.

Remembrance is a very refreshing cocktail.  I also created this cocktail 2 years ago.  

Although you can not see the different colors of ingredients in this cocktail, I can tell you that I do have red, white and blue all mixed up inside.

Finally the last cocktail is one that I made last week!  

With summer weather beginning to hang around more often then not lately, I had decided to create something with watermelon puree.  This is my American Watermelon Daiquiri.

Those are the fun, delicious and tasty Patriotic Cocktails that I have made over the past 4 years.  Do you have any favorite Patriotic Cocktails that you like to enjoy?  I'd love to hear about them!

  1. Great ideas! I love how a simple red sugar rim makes it look so patriotic!

  2. Good to know about this Cocktails Event! I wish I could have attended it. Anyway I attended a grand Christmas party at a party venue Houston with my family last year. Had a wonderful time there and we enjoyed it a lot!
