After the coldest, snowiest, most dreadful winter, and rainy spring, it’s almost time to celebrate July Fourth.

Raise your glass with these tasty, refreshing and easy to make drinks. Strawberries’ sweet, juicy taste make them ideal for warm weather cocktails.

The Top Cat was created by Tad Carducci of the famed mixologist duo, The Tippling Bros.

2 ounces Averna Amaro
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 strawberries, hulled and quartered
4 ounces orange soda, chilled
Lemon slice to garnish

Place the strawberries in a cocktail shaker and muddle well.
Add the Averna Amaro and lemon juice to the shaker and then fill with ice.
Vigorously shake the mixture for 35 seconds and then strain into a cocktail glass filled with fresh crushed ice.
Top the drink with the orange soda and then garnish with a lemon slice; serve immediately.
