Celebrating the Fourth of July: Mix It Up for Singles or a Crowd with Azzurre Spirits!

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!! Hope you have a spectacular day full of friends, food and sips!

I have just about wrapped up all my July 4 coverage though there will be a bit tomorrow featuring jewelry and some additional recipes that will help get you back on a healthy track of sips and cocktails!

For today’s events, you might want to check out Azzurre Spirits! They present both gin and vodka which are clean, crisp and super smooth. This is a great collection of recipes and they are worth mixing up as pitcher drinks or single entities. I think they all sound fabulous!

About Azzurre Spirits
Azzurre Spirits began as a personal quest for founder and owner Dan Pettit. Wanting something better than other overly distilled spirits that had too much harsh burn, and not enough natural flavor, Pettit spent years talking with distillers, and experimenting with ingredients and processes. In early 2014, Pettit launched the first American made, blended vodka and gin made from apples, wine grapes, and sugar cane.

Made for the most discerning of spirits enthusiasts, Azzurre Spirits vodka and gin contain no added sugar, are naturally gluten free (contains no grains), and are minimally distilled and filtered to retain the flavors that nature had intended.
