Serve a little bit of sparkle and dazzle and serve Sandiatinis while enjoying the rockets’ red glare. It’s a grown-up version of our refreshing Agua de Sandia with a splash of coconut rum. Delicioso!


It just so happens that the Fourth of July is one of the easiest themes to work with. You can quickly and easily design a cocktail menu using one or all of the patriotic colors of this holiday — we choose to focus on the red.


We are blessed to live in a land that affords such freedom and opportunity, and is protected by such brave men and women. Thank you to those who have served and to those who currently serve this wonderful country of ours. Happy Fourth of July everybody and don’t forget to drink responsibly!

If you take advantage of everything America has to offer, there’s nothing you can’t accomplish.
