Whether you're on a staycation or a summer getaway, July 4th is the perfect holiday to indulge in some cocktails with grownups and mocktails for the kids (and soon-to-be mamas). We've found some fun drinks guaranteed to put a smile on your face this holiday weekend.
Want something simple? Try a watermelon cooler from Martha Stewart. It's kid and mommy-to-be friendly or of course it can be spiked with your favorite tipple. And nothing is quite so satisfying as fresh watermelon on a steamy summer day.
Real Simple's star spangled sangria is easier to make than you think! Make a separate batch with grape juice and a touch of berry juice, serve frozen for an extra refreshing summer treat.
Try one of our favorite sips of all time, grapefruit margaritas from the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten. Add some local blueberries to make it more festive for Independence Day.
