Patriotic Cocktail Recipes

My friends at Maestro Dobel Tequila and Three Olives Vodka are ready to help us all celebrate the 4th of July with their very patriotic cocktails to get the party started.  My favorite looking cocktails also happened to be the most brightly colored......Blue Devil-tini with tequila, Sideline Shooter and the Roman Candle.

Many times. at various parties thrown at our house throughout the year, I'll pick a theme cocktail to go along with the party and I think any one of these would be perfect for the 4th....or upcoming Labor Day as well.

Have a fun, safe and sparkly 4th of July!
