When you're not thinking about America's current state, the Fourth of July is an excellent excuse for BBQs, a socially-distanced party on the beach, endless rounds of cocktails, and an unapologetic round (or five) of Miley's "Party in the U.S.A." After all, July 4 is the only holiday where you can wear red, white, and blue in one outfit without the fear of clashing. So, sure, your celebration might look a little different this year, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate in style. Whether you're registering to vote for the upcoming election, shopping one of the many great sales of the long weekend, or even just chilling on the couch with your good ole' friend Netflix, we got just the cocktail drink for you. Make sure your at-home (or six-feet-apart) celebration is a banger with these drinks that you'll actually make because 1) they're delicious and 2) they require so little effort. Ahead, here are deliciously cool cocktails sure to make you kick off the patriotic holiday in style.
