4th of July and Shark Week Cocktails from Skinnygirl

Celebrate our country’s independence (and my birthday!!) with fireworks, fun-filled cookouts, and, of course, some signature drinks. What better way to get into the American spirit and honor our nation’s stars and stripes than by toasting with red, white and blue cocktails! 

Perk alert: Skinnygirl Cocktails is low-calorie, so no need to stress about all the barbeque you’ll be eating!
