Foodie.com’s Summer Sips: Great Beverages & Cocktails for July 4 + All Summer Long! #Recipes #Sponsored
Fourth of July is not far off. Are you ready for your friends and family in the beverage department? Most likely not — because the food takes first place in this very important summer holiday. That said, I have a slew of drinks I have curated for you to select from are available via Foodie.com.
This is a sponsored post because I am creating this curation. I have no specific brand that is being featured– just that Foodie.com likes my unique content. I selected my specific favorites and I will be using these cocktails and smoothies as jumping off points for new recipes for future posts! A few beverages might look familiar from the Mother’s Day Collection but I added more than 20 new cocktails, drinks that can include spirits or be sipped plain without loss of fun plus some great smoothies.
Here are a few of my favorites– but do check out the entire collection because at time this goes live there are 36 different recipes!
— All of the lemonades Whether the straight up, lemonade cocktails and the fruit + lemonade blasts that sound (and taste) so fun! Start with lemonade as a base and get creative!
— Blood Orange Margarita! In one word, YUM!
— Ginger Mint Gimlet is amazing with the sharp tang of ginger and the coolness of mint along with gin!
— For those being “oh so good”, try the Key Lime Smoothie. While it will blow you away with rum or tequila, it’s amazing as it stands.
I have found at least 20 more cocktails and beverages that are simply amazing sips! Most are easy to do, some require a bit of advance planning– but you have time NOW to do the prep for your favorites. These are my suggestions for GREAT sips from Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon! The celebrations will last all weekend. Why not make every day a celebration worth remembering!!
Have a great July 4 weekend and please let me know what you chose to serve for cocktails over the weekend! Share it on Foodie.com on my specific collection or this blog or via Twitter or facebook.com! Thanks to Foodie.com for featuring this collection!

I am part of foodie.com because I love mixing up cocktails and I try to replicate great food I have had in restos and gastropubs to see if I can whip it up at home. (No more waiting for a table!. I love creating lists and borrowing from others and tweaking it to work for my cooking style. When I do these curated specialty categories, it’s because I have been invited to participate in a sponsored post. Because it is a sponsored post, I am obligated by the FTC to disclose that.
