The Grand Ball Cocktail will Light up The Night this 4th of July

Get ready to raise your glass and celebrate Independence Day with a cooling 4th of July cocktail. As fireworks light up the night sky and patriotic spirit fills the air, this cocktail brings together your favorite bourbon and the season’s freshest ingredients. 

We think this cocktail pairs perfectly with Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon, a gold-winning spirit we featured earlier this year. Read more here.
