Independence Day is tomorrow! How are you celebrating? We have 3 fun cocktails made with those cute little “mini’s” you can pick up from the liquor store to add a fun twist. The best part is… we have a Red, a White and a Blue cocktail recipe to go along with the festivities!
I love the idea of serving up mini alcohol bottles with your drinks because it lets your guests easily decide if they’d like to drink it “virgin”, add just a little bit of alcohol, or make it a really stiff drink. The choice is in their hands.
