Fourth of July Cocktails & Punch

July 1, 2020 –Independence Day gatherings might be limited this year but we can still ring in America’s birthday with a vibrant and patriotic punch made with a combination of Bacardi white and flavored rums.  The great thing about the Red Rum Punch recipe below is it can be adjusted for two people or 10. This cocktail combines grenadine, sweet & sour, and cranberry juice to create a tasty punch that will have you and your small gathering of friends feeling festive.

Craving something refreshing yet really simple with just three ingredients?  Try the Cuatro Mismo.  It’s tall and bubbly and a good drink to have on hand for the rest of the summer.

And don’t forget Bacardi’s Rum Cocktails in convenient 12 oz. cans for ultimate no effort deliciousness.  For a more festive presentation, serve over ice in a large wine glass and garnish (or not) with a slice or twist of something citrus.  Drink service solved!
