In honor of our die-hard patriotism here at Chow Bella, we visited three local bars and asked bartenders to make a single cocktail on the fly -- a drink they'd be proud to pour on the Fourth of July. So go ahead, throw that overrated backyard barbecue. Invite Grandma and the neighbors. Don't even worry about what you throw on the grill, because you'll shine like 50 stars once your guests taste these drinks. (Oh, and relax, the recipes are really simple.)
