It's Fourth of July Weekend!  Families, friends, neighbors, and strangers will celebrate together while basking in the sunshine of the American summer.  There will be cook-offs, parties, and trips to the beach/lake/pool.  Since you won't be a work, and it's a three day weekend, here's some drink ideas for those who want to get into the mood.

From a Watermelon Wave to a Pina Colada to a Blue Hawaiian, these red, white, and blue drinks are bound to get you and all your friends in the spirit of Independence Day!

Here are some suggestions from About.com:

And don't forget the classic red, white and blue Jell-O shots!

Happy 4th of July America!
