fourth of july cocktails

I am headed back to Pennsylvania this weekend for another wedding. The weather this morning is already perfect: sunny, warm, a nice breeze, and clear skies. Naturally, this kind of day just demands summer cocktails and outdoor plans. I found some great looking holiday-themed cocktails from Real Simple, and wanted to share them before it's too late to go out and make some yourself for the long weekend. I'm checking out the Strawberry Sucker (by Rachel Ray) myself. Click below for recipes, and enjoy!
