KANSAS CITY, Mo — The 4th of July is just a few days away, meaning now is the time to start planning the perfect libations for your celebration. Cheryl Bisbee, Owner of Boozy Botanicals, joins us with some delicious, refreshing options that are perfect for summer.

Rosemary Mint Mojito Cocktail:
1.5 oz white rum
.5 oz Rosemary Mint simple syrup
5-6 fresh mint leaves
Half fresh lime, cut into wedges
Muddle lime, mint and syrup in cocktail shaker. Add rum and ice and shake vigorously. Strain into glass filled with ice and top with club soda. Garnish with fresh mint sprig.

For the mocktail version, use 1.5 oz of coconut water instead of rum.

1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 to 3 cups water
