The Fourth of July is right around the corner. I can almost smell the sulfur in the air! Although The Fourth wouldn’t be The Fourth without fireworks, it also wouldn’t be The Fourth without some festive libations. Awhile back I posted a few red, white and blue boozy recipes, including non-alcoholic options for each. I thought it was time to add to our patriotic, bar tending arsenal. A search of the internet came up with some doozies.
