Fourth of July Cocktails

Red, White, & Blitzed Party Shot

Make sure each layer is completely set before you add the next one in this impressive Jell-O shot. It should stay put when you tilt your pan sideways.

Spiked Seltzer Slushies

If you thought a can of White Claw was perfect on its own, you haven’t given it a whirl in your blender. This recipe (if you can even call it that!) can be easily customized based on what flavors and fruits you prefer. Our favorite combos: lemon-flavored spiked seltzer + frozen strawberries or mango + frozen pineapple.

Drunk Jack Frosties

Is it REALLY hot out this 4th of July? Drink these wintery frozen drinks made of Prosecco, vodka, blue curaçao, and lemonade to cool off.

Cape Codder

The Cape Codder (or Cape Cod cocktail) is simply the more official–and cute–name for a vodka-cranberry. If you want to go the extra mile (like we so often do) you can add a splash of lime juice and garnish with a lime wedge.

Red, White & Boozy Shakes

Because freedom means fruity milkshakes (with ice cream and sorbet) spiked with blue curaçao and vodka.

Frozen Watermelon Margarita

This recipe requires a little forethought. Chop up some fresh watermelon and throw it in the freezer the night before you make the margs—this ensures the drinks are perfectly slushy and ICE cold. (If you forgot, don’t fret! Two hours in the freezer should do the trick.)

Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri

For best results, we call for two types of strawberries: fresh and frozen. Using frozen strawberries gives body to the drink without watering down the flavor like ice would, and fresh strawberries add juiciness and a syrupy quality, keeping the drink from being too thick. That squeeze of lime? Essential. The fresh citrus kick will make the strawberries shine even brighter in flavor.
