July parties often have a particular color scheme. These red, white, and blue cocktails borrow inspiration from another classic patriotic treat, the bomb pop. With a nod to nostalgia, everyone will raise a glass to the colorful cocktails.

Sometimes a cocktail can set the mood or the tone for an event. While many people love that effervescent spritz on a warm day, others turn to a more defined theme for a party. It might not necessarily be a signature cocktail, but it gets everyone a little more excited to skip cracking open that beer for a more potent potable.

With red, white and blue cocktails, the options come in various forms. Some people carefully layer ingredients to create that visual. Others go for a more simple approach, using a particular ingredient to color the glass. No matter the approach, the glass become a visual stunner.

Here are some red, white and blue bomb pop cocktails.
