“Red, white and booze” (“Red, white and boozed”)

“Red, white and booze” (or “Red, white and boozed”)—a drinking take on America’s colors of red, white and blue—has been printed on many images. “Red, white and booze” has been cited in print since at least 1920. “Red, white & boozed” was posted on Twitter on July 3, 2010.
   
“Red, white and barbecue” and “Red, white and brew” are similar terms based on America’s colors.
