4th of July Cocktails. Red, White & SKYY Blue.
The Fourth of July for many people conjures images of parades, barbecues, flags, and most of all, fireworks. The origins of today’s grand Fourth of July firework displays are often accredited to Thomas Jefferson’s practice of evening “illuminations,” encouraging American’s to place lit candles in street-side windows at night to promote patriotism and unity. The "rockets red glare" didn't come until much later in 1814 when Francis Scott Key penned what was to become our national anthem.
However, it was another founding father who really knew how to set the celebratory mood of many of today’s Fourth of July festivities. On the fourth of July 1778, George Washington celebrated with his troops in the field by offering them a double ration of liquor.
In the spirit of George Washington, we recommend you present a “double ration” of red, white and blue patriotism to your holiday guests with delicious, vibrant color-coded cocktails featuring SKYY Vodka, Campari and Cabo Wabo Blanco Tequila.
Born in San Francisco in 1992, SKYY Vodka has grown to be the largest producer of vodka in the U.S. Partnered with Campari from Italy and Cabo Wabo Tequila from Mexico, the trio captures the spirit of the all-American melting pot.
These great red, white and blue Fourth of July recipes are sure to bring out the true patriot in your guests.
