4th of July Drinks

Posted: Updated:

The most important thing today: fireworks. The second most important thing: a drink to watch the fireworks. We're checking out a few places where the cocktails pack a patriotic punch.

On the Fourth of July weekend, we toast the land of the free and get a little toasted in the process.

At Cafe Prima Pasta in Miami Beach, you'll be sipping on something special for the holiday.

Giuseppe Marino: "This year at the bar, me and Henry, we're gonna be celebrating our Independence Day with a great drink list. All prices $7.14."

Henry runs the bar. He came up with the July 4 specialties. His cocktails, like his hat and bow tie, are very patriotic.

Henry the Mixologist: "This is a drink that we're not gonna forget. We call it Uncle Sam, very Famous Uncle Sam, Uncle Sam Martini."

Cointreau, vodka, a little Blue Curaçao. Top it off with grenadine, and there's your Uncle Sam.

If that doesn't fly your flag, try this one.

Henry: "Now I'm going to show you how to make a Patriot Punch."

All it takes is rum-infused piña colada, some blueberry pomegranate, homemade fruit punch, vodka and whipped cream. Ahh, sweet freedom.

Henry: "I'm gonna start to make the Lady Liberty tonight."

Henry takes raspberry sorbet, Blue Curaçao and vodka, gives it a good shake and fills your glass with yet another drink to make the Founding Fathers proud.

Henry: "Happy Fourth, everybody. All the best."

Tradition rules at Orange Blossom in South Beach. The holiday cocktails celebrate America's present as well as her past.

Trevor Alberts: "So what we were really trying to do is maybe something fashionable for the weather, keeping with the times, of course, but also keeping it very classic."

The Ginger Berry Cobbler is actually an update of a classic cocktail using French ginger liqueur and Fino sherry.

Trevor Alberts: "Sherry Cobbler, more or less, was with sherry and muddled fruit over crushed ice."

You can travel back in time with a sip of the Jack Rose cocktail.

Trevor Alberts: "Jack Rose cocktail is apple brandy, which has been made in this country since the 1600's. In addition, we use a little bit of house-made grenadine and some fresh lemon juice as well."

Celebrate your freedom of choice and drink up.

    Big, bouncing, beautiful butts: that's what pop culture is currently obsessed with. I can't blame people, though. I mean, I get it. I love JLo's luscious curves, Kim Kardashian's arguably more-than-ample derriere, Miley Cyrus' terrific, tail-twerking ways; I'm even warming up to Nicki Minaj's booty-popping song and video, "Anaconda."

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.
