Patriotic Party Drinks

This year we're loving these drink recipes for the 4th of July holiday thanks to their patriotic hues and flavors.

Serve one or all at your celebration as a festive refreshment your guests will love - and there's something here for everyone. Whether you're looking to satisfy your adult guests lounging about or quench the thirst of the kids running around the yard.


  • The great thing about this first 4th of July drink is that it's easy to make into a cocktail or mocktail depending on who requests a glass. Simply leave out the Acai vodka if serving to kids - either way though, the bright red and blue berries paired with a festive striped and star topped straw makes for a patriotic sip.

  • Sip on this red and blue pop rocks patriotic shooter while watching the fireworks for a truley eye-opening experience! The crackle and fizz of the pop rocks mixed with the irresistable flavor of the cocktail make for one amazing combination.

  • Jell-O shots have been spotted all over Celebrations.com for months now - it's one of our more favorite party trends right now. So, it makes sense we'd go crazy for this kid-friendly red, white and blue version Kristi of SaucyPants.com shared with us . Spike your mix with vodka to make this a cocktail, too.

  • Want to just do blue? These effervescent blue lemon martinis should do the trick!

  • Another berry favorite the kids can enjoy, this time, it's a pure lemonade mix . We're loving it for breakfast on the holiday!

  • We've mixed up the ultimate patriotic lemonade by making it blue! Pair it with these juicy watermelon stirrers and you've got a tasty cocktail that's not only delicious but refreshing, too.

  • This patriotic party drink is a muddled blueberry gin mixture made with lazy porch lounging in mind. It's tart, sweet and a whole lot satisfying if the temps in your area climb real high.

  • Finally, we're loving this lo-cal all red - well, with a bit of green - mojito recipe for the fourth. It's perfect if you're celebrating beachside!
