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.

Tequila is a big player in the rich canon of cocktail culture. The agave spirit serves as the backbone of everything from a classic margarita to a refreshing Paloma. In short, if you have a home bar, it better have a few decent bottles of tequila in the mix to whip up cocktails with tequila.

While there are some great sipping tequilas, much of what's out there tends to do better with some complementary ingredients; that's where these classic tequila cocktails really shine, blending the earthy and spicy punch of tequila with bright-as-the-sun citrus and more.

A cocktail doesn't have to be a complicated thing. In fact, many of the best classic cocktails involve just a few ingredients. These, my friends, are the cocktails you should know how to make, as they're simple to pull off and taste superb.

Maximalist cocktails with as many ingredients as there are stars in the sky are great, but better left to the pros. We like to make the ones that don't require a whole lot of special equipment (outside of a good cocktail shaker) or that take too much of your precious time. These are cocktails that tend to let your favorite spirit shine, whether it's good rye whiskey or a favorite gin.
