Fourth of July Festive Drink Ideas

Summer Cocktails

With Fourth of July weekend quickly approaching we are excited to introduce you to Mixologist and Author of 101 Tropical Drinks, Kim Haasarud. As the founder of Liquid Architecture, a beverage consulting firm that creates specialty cocktails for clients such as the OMNI Hotels and ResortsPF Chang’s, Wyndham Worldwide Hotels, Moet Hennessy, SKYY Spirits and dozens of other hotels and restaurants around the country as well as for alcohol and beverage brands, Kim's cocktails have appeared in hundreds of publications and TV shows.


For the 4th of July, she created some delicious and unique drinks complete with a tropical twist for your big bash - while still paying homage to the red, white and blue! This includes a tropical twist with mixers like Summer Wind and Pink Flamingo Punch (Red), a Pina Colada (White) and a Blue Hawaiian or Whale Rider (Blue) that still matches your "All-American" decor. She also has ideas for Quirky Summer Drinks with Can I have a Summer Wind, please? How about a Sunburn, No Tan Lines or a Skinny Dip? as well as Summer Classics with a tropical twist like serving summer drink staples like mai tais and daiquiris with a creative twist, like in a carved watermelon keg or pineapple punch bowl.

Whether you are looking to add a little punch to your 4th of July party or enhance your summer party experience, KIm's recipes are sure to bring a mix of vibrancy, creativity and fun to any party this summer.
