Whether you’re celebrating our country’s independence with close family or throwing a rager with your college friends, this patriotic punch is a must-make.

The red, white and blue drink literally takes no time at all to concoct, but will make it look like you put in a ton of effort and planned ahead (because you are the farthest thing from a procrastinator, right?).

Serve this drink as a virgin sipper, or pour a little booze into it to get the night started with a bang. Could you think of a better way to celebrate our country than with a little bit of ‘Merica in your cup?
