Cracking open a cold one on the 4th of July is all but a requirement on the day we celebrate our country’s independence. The grill is smoking, the tunes are rocking, the ribs are perfect, and friends and family are splashing in the pool. It’s one of the most fun-filled days of the year. And of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a few brewskis. But what if, in addition to the cold brews, you’re looking to add a bit of fruity fun to the mix this year? Often on the 4th, beer and maybe some margaritas are the only options on the menu. And don’t think for one moment we have anything against the classics. But what if you’re looking to mix it up a bit this year? What if, in addition to the beers and margaritas (or beer margaritas), you want something with a hint of sophistication or sass? Tina’s Vodka has got you covered.

Deliciously pure and smooth, Tina’s Vodka is made with only purified water and non-gmo, organic corn in a distilling process that involves renewable organic coconut shells — so you can feel good about getting lit right alongside those sparklers. But you know, be careful.

So if you’re in the market for some cocktails that are perfect for the 4th, these vodka drink recipes are exactly what you’ll want to be mixing up when it’s time for fireworks.

Here are a dozen great gins worth drinking straight
Some gins are good enough to be enjoyed on their own. This list spotlights a dozen of them
Bluecoat Barrel Finished Gin

Gin is an assertive drink, meaning you don't always want to have it neat. It's an aromatic spirit that tends to play very well with things like tonic water, sparkling water, citrus, and more. But there are some standout gins out there that have all the complexity and layers of anything else you'd enjoy neat, from a good pinot noir to a refined Scotch whisky.

Mix with it all you want; we're not here to stop you. Some of the best cocktails in the galaxy involve the clear spirit, from a Corpse Reviver to the Ramos Gin Fizz. But do not overlook gin if you're after something to enjoy on its own in the glass. Don't let the neutral appearance of the stuff fool you -- gin can be wonderful stuff even all by its lonesome.

Spring has sprung and it's time for a gin cocktail. Here are some of the best recipes to try.
tom collins cocktail

Spring is gin season. Yeah, the clear spirit is great year-round, but there's just something very right now about the stuff. Maybe it's the fragrance, maybe it's the many spring-like botanicals that go into the stuff. Maybe it's been a long winter, and we simply need a good cocktail.

If you're still mixing up whiskey cocktails or dreaming of a sunny beach and engineering tequila cocktails, more power to you. We simply encourage you to embrace gin and not just as the ball and chain to tonic. No, a good gin can do wonders in a number of cocktails, bringing fresh, herbal flavors to the mix and working great with high-toned additions like citrus and other fresh fruit.
