It's a holiday. It's a hot holiday. You need refreshment. You need fun refreshment. SAY NO MORE!

For a holiday as festive and fun as the Fourth of July, you need beverages that are anything but ordinary. Here are 5 of our bestest ideas for chilling out on the holiday or any day this summer!

For recipes, click on titles or photos.

1) American-Style Italian Soda (featured)

Raspberry syrup and sparkling water combine for a coloriciously cooling refreshment. I served these to at least 25 people at our lake cabin last year on the 4th. Total FUN!

2) American Flag Cordial

This spirited spirit is for adults only! It's a fun party pleaser.

3) Basic Sangria

A cooling, festive treat for the adults at your 4th of July gathering, sangria is a merry mixture -- and it's totes the right color.

4) Grilled Georgia Peach Lemonade

Ok, so this one's not red, white or blue. But stick a small flag pick into a peach and you've got an awesome holiday garnish for this summery fam-friendly drink!

5) Bubbly Mint-Lime Iced Tea

It doesn't get more refreshing than a combo of mint and lime. So chill out and cool down with this iced tea that has it all.

 Happy 4th of July!
