The Fourth of July is a holiday celebrated by all Americans. Some spend it with family, others with friends. Some head to the beach while others lay by the pool. The one thing almost every does? Other than pray to the sun gods for good weather? Drink.

The Chilled AmericanHave you ever been to a July Fourth party without alcohol? We think not. There are coolers stocked with beer, tables set up with Red Solo Cups scattered among bottles of liquor and a few bottles of wine chilling in the fridge for the fancier type.

And of course there’s food. LOTS of food. Most of that food being red, white and blue. Pretty much every variation of strawberries, blueberries and bananas you can imagine.

But you can eat fruit any day. We want booze. Red, white and blue booze, to be exact. Thankfully, Smirnoff hooked us up with some sweet patriotic cocktails to make your Fourth of July red, white and deliciously boozy.
