Fun and Festive Fourth of July Cocktails

Monday, July 3, 2017
For any holiday, I like to serve a signature cocktail. It puts a festive, fun and customized touch on the celebration. For the Fourth of July, the possibilities are endless. There's so much you can do with a red, white and blue theme. Here are two suggestions for fizzy, fruity cocktails made with zero-calorie Sparkling Ice and world-renowned Italian winery Santa Margherita for your star-spangled holiday.
