July 4th is coming, and if all the fireworks and flag-waving leave you feeling a bit parched, we’ve got three red, white, and boozy cocktails to help you celebrate Independence Day!

 

1. Stars & Stripes

First up is the Stars & Stripes cocktail which uses Hypnotiq. If you’ve never tried Hypnotiq before, it’s made of vodka, fruit juice and a splash of cognac. We love this liquor because it’s blue!

 

Ingredients

Hypnotiq

Sprite

Red Vines

Ice

Pint glass

 

Directions

Fill pint glass with ice

Fill halfway with Hypnotiq

Top off with Sprite

Use 3 Red Vines as straws

 

2. Popsi-quila

Next – declare independence from your standard margarita with the Popsi-quila. It’s only three ingredients, and the best part? It comes with a snack!

 

Ingredients

Silver tequila

Red, white and blue popsicles

Rocks glass

 

Directions

Pour two shots of silver tequila into a rocks glass

Garnish with a red, white, and blue popsicle in the glass

 

3. Champatriot

Finally – we bet you’ll run to the bar for our last cocktail, the Champatriot!

 

Ingredients

Honey

Blue sugar

Watermelon

Sparkling wine

Champagne glass

 

Directions

Using honey as the adhesive, line the rim of a champagne glass with blue sugar. Fill the glass a quarter of the way with chopped watermelon. Pour sparkling wine to rim.
