City Pulse

Almost finished planning an amazing Fourth of July get together? There’s one thing you can make that’ll take your patriotism to a whole other level: themed cocktails!

These cocktail recipes from Devotion Vodka are patriotic, delicious, and easy to make for whatever kind of party you throw. How patriotic are they? Well, not only are their names and colors all-American, but Devotion’s vodkas are all made in the U.S.A. Oh and they’re also gluten and sugar-free. Doesn’t get any more American than that!

A couple of these and you’ll really be putting the “free” and “brave” in “land of the free and the home of the brave.” Cheers!
