Smirnoff Red, White and Berry Cocktail Recipes To Celebrate Memorial Day

Published

on

Who else is excited for Memorial Day weekend? I’m having a bunch of friends and family over for a huge backyard BBQ bash as we celebrate the unofficial start of summer. The pool is open, we’ll have plenty of burgers and hot dogs on the grill, and of course, delicious cocktails to help everyone keep cool and having fun.

So what’s on the drink menu? A pair of patriotic red, white, and blue cocktails that feature Smirnoff Red, White and Berry, courtesy of Megan Marlowe from The Strawberry Blondie Kitchen. They’re amazing, with versatile flavors like cherry, blue raspberry and citrus, and I know that they’re going to be a huge hit with our guests.

These cocktails are super easy to make, so serve them up at this weekend’s backyard BBQ or day at the beach:
