4th of July Signature Cocktails

In addition to the beer, pop and water you’ll serve at your 4th of July party this year, why not create your own signature drink? And make it red, white and blue while you’re at it. Members of the Twin Cities Live staff happily volunteered to test out a few cocktail recipes to give you some inspiration. TCL reporter Kelli Hanson, producer Lisa Adams and photographer Drew Schingen stopped by with drinks they’ll be serving at their holiday party!
