A major element in celebrations of our nation's independence is the food involved. However you spend tomorrow, there will likely be lots of serious grubbing, and there's nothing more American than eating into an utter oblivion. To help you get your festivities into the patriotic spirit, we gathered 10 fun recipes and edible items, from Jell-O shots to decadent desserts, that proudly showcase the red, white and blue to complete your 4th of July celebration.
The way we celebrate our country’s independence day is a funny thing. Some of us spend the 4th with friends, family, and heaps of barbecue, while others party on the beach where the only things stronger than the sun's rays are the drinks. The craftier people among us might spend hours on Pinterest for red-white-and-blue snacks to make while still others intend to end the night in a stars-and-stripes-themed rager. But regardless of whether you plan to guzzle BBQ sauce or Belvedere, there are loads of ways to celebrate the freedom of ‘Murica, and we've covered it all here in our complete L.A. 4th of July Weekend Party Guide.
