Every good Fourth of July party needs some delicious and refreshing cocktails. Sure, there is always beer and wine, but what's the fun in that? I found some amazing, patriotic cocktails for you to give a try, compliments of the Food Network. You will love these recipes. 

Everyone has a different preference when it comes to alcohol. Each of these fabulous cocktails are perfect for any scorching, hot, Fourth of July celebration in Louisiana.

If you are looking for something spicy with tequila, Guy Fieri's Fourth of July Cocktail will definitely do the trick. It balances out the perfect amount of sweetness with a little spicy kick. The main ingredients:  tequila, watermelon schnapps, and a serrano pepper.

Maybe you want to be extra festive and creative; the Red-White-and-Blue Cocktails are delicious and beautiful. Coat the rim of the glasses with blue pop rocks. Main ingredients:  pomegranate or cranberry juice, seltzer, and liquor of choice (preferably vodka).

Craving something fruity? Giada's Berry Lemonade Cocktail is full of fruit with a hint of vanilla. You can add any liquor of choice or keep it virgin for the kids to enjoy too. Main ingredients:  frozen mixed berries, lemonade concentrate, simple syrup, and 1 vanilla bean.

Happy Fourth of July, y'all! Cheers!
