Turn up “The Star-Spangled Banner” and fire up your grills. It’s time to toast to our independence with a few festive cocktails.
We like to think of the martini as the gateway to a world of splendid mixology imagination – truly, you can make it taste like whatever you’re craving (Got a sweet tooth? There’s a martini for that).
