Happy Wednesday! Fourth of July is next Monday. I hope all of you out there celebrate this American holiday relaxing, eating good food, and hanging out with your favorite people.
Typically, this holiday is spent outside around the grill with a cold cocktail in hand. Try this refreshing, fruit cocktail this year. This cocktail is fruit and liquor only. No added sweeteners or mixers. For an added bonus, watermelon is packed with vitamins such as A & C and has a high water content so it is a refreshing way to stay cool in the hot sun. Plus, the beautiful colors are perfect for an Independence day party: Red (Watermelon & Strawberries), White (Tequila) and Blue (Blueberry ice cubes) !
WATERMELON STRAWBERRY 'RITA
Want to keep your drink ice cold without diluting? Make flavored ice cubes!
In an ice cube tray, place 4-5 blueberries and fill the tray with any citrus juice (lemon, lime, or orange), coconut water or plain filtered water.
Even though this cocktail may quench your thirst. Remember to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Check out our hydration post for more tips.
I hope you enjoy this beverage over the holiday weekend! Not hosting? Blend up a batch, pour into a large mason jar and take with you. Before serving, shake it up in the jar and serve over ice and tequila.
