Celebrate 4th of July with Red, White & Blue #Cocktails from @Skinnygirl!

The 4th of July is not only a holiday filled with American pride and patriotism, but also one that we tend to celebrate with fun, laughter and a few timeless traditions. Families around the country will be getting together this weekend in homes, on the beach, in the park and countless other venues to kick up their heels and observe this Federal Holiday. Banks and other businesses will close down so that their employees may also pay tribute to the United States. Showing our appreciation and love for the wonderful gift that we have is always in order and we should keep this tradition alive and passed down from generation to generation. In honor of Independence Day, we want to share a few of our special red, white and blue signature drink recipes with you to add to your celebration and traditions.

Revere in our country's independence with fireworks, fun-filled BBQ cook-outs, family and friends and of course, Skinnygirl Cocktails! There's no better way to get into the American spirit and honor our nation's stars and stripes than by toasting with patriotic red, white and blue beverages. Skinnygirl Cocktails always has a knack for coming up with the most creative and eye-catching drinks, and these tasty concoctions won't disappoint! My favorite is the Blueberry Sparkler! As an added bonus, Skinnygirl Cocktails are low-calorie, so there's no need to stress about all the BBQ you'll be munching on this weekend. Awesome!
