Red White & Booze: Cocktails for Memorial Day Weekend!

The Juice

All around the US, Memorial Day is celebrated to thank our soldiers for their continual work around our country and the world. We remember the soldiers who fought bravely for our country. We remember the tragedies alongside the victories. These brave people fought for us to have our freedoms and abilities to be true Americans. So we celebrate their efforts and victories and we continue to remember them on this day and always.

All around the US, citizens do the most American thing possible to thank our US military members for allowing us to be American: grill up some hamburgers, have a few beers, gather with friends, and enjoy our beautiful country.
