The Fourth of July has always been a favorite holiday in our family. For much of our life, we lived on a lake which means that our parents spent many Independence Days hosting big parties. From dressing up for boat parades (our vintage "sports" costume we dug out of our grandmas closet was our favorite and won us $100 at the local bar) to creating playlists for the fireworks show, we were all in when in came to the Fourth.This year, we have elected to celebrate on the farm. A big Fourth of July party with masks, gloves and social distancing didn't sound like much fun so we are keeping it small. Coming from a family where there is never less than 75 people at our party, we are both really looking forward to a party that is smaller, more intimate but still filled with plenty of booms (Ross would have it no other way).Probably the best thing about keeping things small this year is the opportunity to really level up our drink menu. Usually our Fourth of July drinks all come in a can you dig for in the cooler. But this year, we are taking the opportunity to do drinks right and setting up a real festive drink bar. A well planned bar set up encourages conversation and invention. It sparks creativity and becomes a collaborative party activity that EVERYONE can enjoy (yes, even guests who don't drink).To help you set up your Fourth of July bar we have outlined a few of our tips and tricks and have created a couple of festive recipe cards for you to print out for the bar.
