6 Spirits to Try This July

July 1, 2022

It might go without saying, but the fourth of July is one of the country’s biggest drinking holidays! Many people have the holiday off and will enjoy a long weekend at the beach, on vacation, or simply a long staycation at home. With the big day landing on a Monday, many people will sprinkle their celebrations throughout the weekend, a pre-gaming for the finale on the fourth. If you’re planning a celebration of the nation’s birth, but want to stand out from all the competition this weekend, we have you covered! Here are six spirits to try this July from our mobile bar service North Carolina.


If you’re looking for an all-in-one patriotic concoction, this is it. Achieve those lovely layers of red, white, and blue by pouring red grenadine, lemonade, Blue Curacao, and vodka into a tall glass. The result will be reminiscent of the firecracker popsicles you had as a kid, only this time in an ice-cold cocktail! Our mobile bar service North Carolina can even add in a lit sparkler as a garnish to make things pop.


  • 1 ounce Grenadine
  • 3 ounces lemonade
  • 1 ounce Blue Curacao
  • 1 ounce Vodka
  • Ice cubes

Strawberry Mimosa

If you’re hosting any brunch-time celebrations this weekend, this strawberry spin on the classic brunch beverage will be a hit. Using the same ingredients as with a mimosa, our mobile bar service North Carolina will throw blended frozen strawberries into the mix. Throw in a champagne glass rimmed in sugar and top with a ripe strawberry and voilà! Our bartending services near me have added a touch of red to your event’s table.


  • 3 cups of frozen strawberries
  • 1 whole strawberry
  • 1 bottle champagne
  • 2 tbsp sugar

O say can you…Sangria!

Looking for something that incorporates all of the country’s colors, but want to keep it classy? Try this. Prepared just as you would any other sangria, our mobile bar service North Carolina will mix your favorite Moscato white wine with grape juice and vodka. Plop in blueberries, strawberries, and lychee to finish off your patriotic punch!


  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup of peeled whole lychee
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 750 milliliters Moscato white wine
  • 8 ounces of grape juice
  • 8 ounces vodka


Made in New York City in 1917, the aviation is one of the oldest, yet more obscure American cocktails. A minimalistic-yet-bold drink, its bright blue hue makes it the perfect choice for a more sophisticated fourth soirée. Our mobile bartender near me can mix these ingredients, and top the drink off with your garnish. Garnishes are typically done Manhattan style, with a single fruit skewered and balancing atop the glass, but our bartenders for hire near me can add any garnish you like.


  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce maraschino liquer
  • 1/2 ounce crème de violette
  • 1 Maraschino cherry
  • ice cubes

Gin Rickey

Have all the colors you need? Consider serving Gin Rickeys! These lime-flavored clear drinks are the perfect palette (pun intended) cleanser. These simple spirits are a great choice if you’re dealing with picky drinkers, as they go with almost anything you might be serving at America’s birthday bash! With just three ingredients, our bartenders for hire near me can make these quickly, which makes them perfect if you’re throwing things together last minute.


  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 4 ounces of club soda
  • 1 ounces gin

Jello Shot Stars and Stripes

The ultimate party drink reimagined for the fourth, Jello shots are a fun and festive way to get the party rolling! However, these do require time and care to prepare, so we’d suggest making sure you communicate with your mobile bartender near me to make sure they can be done with plenty of time to spare. We can layer the jello into stripes or if you want to get crafty, have your bartender near me cut out some star shapes and place them in contrasting layers.


  • 1 (3-ounce) box of Strawberry Jello mix
  • 1 (3-ounce) box of Berry Blue Jello mix
  • 2 packets of Knox unflavored gelatin
  • 1 (14-ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 cups boiling water, divided
  • 2 cups vodka, divided
  • 1-2 cans of whipped cream
  • Maraschino cherries
