There are many things you can do to celebrate the Fourth of July with your friends and co-workers…

But just because the holiday falls on Casual Friday this year doesn’t mean you have to strip down to just stars and stripes. In fact, we think your buddies would much prefer that you simply made them a patriotic cocktail. So we’ve found a few of our fave red, white, and booze-filled concoctions for you to serve up on the Fourth.

And hey, maybe if they drink enough of these delish drinks, they won’t even notice that you’re wearing an American Flag thong.
