BBQ Party at Your House
If you’re not wanting to go anywhere at all, you can’t go wrong with hanging out at the house and throwing down a big BBQ party. Throw on some steaks or burgers, get the beverages on ice and just hang with your family and friends. If you’re wanting some patriotic-themed adult beverages to really get the fireworks going at your party, I listed some drink recipes below. Just remember to be safe and drink responsibly.
