4th of July Cocktails

Food & Drink

I would by lying if I said I have ever been calorie–conscious on the 4th of July. Between the endless trays of hamburgers, potato salad, American flag–themed cakes, and ample alcohol choices, it's clearly a day of indulgence. However, Rose's Cocktail Infusions is making it easier to maintain a bikini–season body with a light martini mixer that has 1/3 of the calories of standard mixers of its kind. Most importantly, it actually tastes great and I appreciate that it's slightly less sweet than the average mixer, which I can attest to after receiving a product sample. Try out the following recipes on the 4th and have a fantastic holiday!
