Happy Hour | Happy Birthday America

Happy Independence Day Weekend everyone (and for those you not in the USA, happy Friday). As those of us in the United States get ready to celebrate the July 4th holiday, I figured why not keep with the red, white and blue theme for this week’s Happy Hour.  So fire up the grill, jump in the pool and give these cocktails a spin.
