With Fourth of July just two days away, perhaps you’re planning a party? I know I am! July 4th is one of my very favorite holidays. I love spending the day with family and friends celebrating our independence, eating good food and of course, fireworks! The fireworks are my very favorite part. It’s the kid in me. I’m forever in awe of them.

I love watching my girls as their faces light up watching those bright bursts of sound and light. It’s just amazing. When it comes to our barbecue celebration, a signature cocktail is a great way to up the liven up the party. This Blue Sky On The Rocks cocktail is patriotic perfection! Tequila mingles with a splash of lime juice, pomegranate liqueur, blue curaçao and more. Top it all off with a little lemon-lime soda and you’ve got a fizzy, festive Fourth of July cocktail that’s ready to party!
