Red White & Boom

If you're looking for an easy way to serve mocktails, which doesn't require you to be chained to the blender all day, look no further than the hard-working punch bowl. Just mix up a batch of Red White and Boom ahead of time, so you can enjoy the day's festivities. Lemonade, cranberry juice, and fresh strawberries and blueberries give this drink its patriotic look. Note: For the over-21 version of this drink, add your favorite vodka to the mix.

Triple-Layered Mocktail

Red, white, and blue are the colors of choice when celebrating the Fourth of July. Layering these colors in a glass Mason jar is a simple way to make an eye-popping drink. Create this gorgeous mocktail by first adding cranberry juice, then ice, and then Blue Gatorade. Garnish with an American flag straw from the party store.

Patriotic Sangria

Deliciously refreshing mock sangria is a crowd-pleasing summer party hit. You can whip up a big batch of this tasty mocktail ahead of time so the flavors meld together. Just use your favorite nonalcoholic white wine for a fun, festive libation. When serving guests, add patriotic flair by garnishing with striped straws, mini flags, and adorable star-shaped pineapple wedges.

Spiked Bomb Pop

First, mix up one of the layered red, white, and blue drinks. Then take it up a notch by adding a striped popsicle to the serving glasses. This cool treat does double duty as both happy hour and dessert.

Cherry-Red Twizzler Straws

No matter what drink you're serving, popping cherry-red Twizzler straws into each glass will add a fun, festive touch. This sweet garnish is adorable with a blue cocktail for the adults or a mocktail for the kids.

Simply Refreshing Sparkler

If sugary cocktails aren't your favorite, then we've got a simple summery drink you'll love. Freeze fresh blueberries and whole ripe strawberries in ice cube trays. Simply top with your favorite favored sparkling water or non-alcoholic champagne for a fresh, healthy party libation.

Happy 4th of July! Celebrate with one of our colorful, patriotic mocktails for a festive bash that your guests will still be talking about over Labor Day!
