Forget the Beer! Summertime Barbecues Call For Fresh Fruity Cocktails

Statistics show that each year 90% of American families attend at least one BBQ party during the summer. The BBQ season officially kicks off on Memorial Day, but it is the Fourth of July that sees the most grills fired up for the entire year with 86% of the gas grills in the nation seeing action that day. That is a heck of a lot of hamburgers, hot dogs and ribs you are going to need to wash down. This year, instead of defaulting to the old standby beer, add a splash of color and a burst of fresh fruity taste to your BBQ libations with some refreshing and easy to make cocktails.

SKYY Vodka's award winning line of all natural SKYY Infusions can easily become the centerpiece of your BBQ or poolside party. One way to bring your guests together is with a do-it-yourself cocktail bar featuring the SKYY Starlight, a fun, adult rendition of the icy cool snow cone. Your guests may also want to beat the heat with something that's equally as bold and refreshing like the favorably tart SKYY Summer Palmer - an jazzy update to the classic Arnold Palmer - or relax before dinner with a more subtle cocktail like the Passion-Politan or the Sweet Lyee Ginger, which features the recently launched SKYY Infusions Ginger. No matter what the occasion, these summer offerings will both impress and satisfy anything one may crave on a hot summer day.

Red, White and SKYY Blue

The Fourth of July for many people conjures images of parades, barbecues, flags, and most of all, fireworks. The origins of today's grand Fourth of July firework displays are often accredited to Thomas Jefferson's practice of evening "illuminations," encouraging American's to place lit candles in street-side windows at night to promote patriotism and unity. The "rockets red glare" didn't come until much later in 1814 when Francis Scott Key penned what was to become our national anthem.

However, it was another founding father who really knew how to set the celebratory mood of many of today's Fourth of July festivities. On the fourth of July 1778, George Washington celebrated with his troops in the field by offering them a double ration of liquor.

In the spirit of George Washington, we recommend you present a “double ration” of red, white and blue patriotism to your holiday guests with delicious, vibrant color-coded cocktails featuring SKYY Vodka, Campari and Cabo Wabo Blanco Tequila.

Born in San Francisco in 1992, SKYY Vodka has grown to be the largest producer of vodka in the U.S. Partnered with Campari from Italy and Cabo Wabo Tequila from Mexico, the trio captures the spirit of the all-American melting pot.
