The Fourth of July is an incredibly important date in American history as it marks our independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Every year on this day, Americans from coast to coast and every state in between celebrate this great country’s liberation with a good old American style barbeque. This day is truly about being with those you love and grubbing down on traditional summer food. Whether it be burgers and dogs, chicken and corn, fish and veggies or all of the above, a Fourth of July barbeque is just not the same without a celebratory red white and blue cocktail.

While tropical fruits are in their prime during the month of July, for this special day why not further honor our great country and imbibe locally grown, traditionally American summer fruits. The options are a plenty. With cherries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, apples and even grapes in season, the choosing can be tough. So lighten your load and take To Abigail for a taste run.
