    • Red and Blue: Cherry-Berry Sangria

      This red wine sangria is a July 4th triple threat -- blueberries, strawberries, and cherries fill the red and blue drink. Don't forget to refrigerate for at least two hours before serving (it helps the flavors meld).

    • White: Coconut-Banana Creme

      Take a trip to the tropics with this refreshing cocktail made with coconut, orange, and banana. A hint of vanilla adds an extra bit of sweetness to the 4th of July drink.

    • Blue: Hawaiian Martini

    • Red: Strawberry Margarita

      Savor summer strawberries with a lip-puckering margarita recipe that's perfect for any July 4th party. Whole strawberries find their place alongside splashes of triple sec and tequila in the drink recipe.

    • White: Pina Colada

      When the temps start to rise, turn to a classic pina colada to cool you down. Learn how to make our 10-minute version of the coconut-pineapple drink!

    • Red: Sweet Cherry Sangria

      Dark sweet cherries and zesty orange lighten your favorite red wine in this sangria recipe. Add orange liqueur and cherry syrup for an extra hit of adults-only flavor.

    • Red, White, and Blue Shakes

      Mimic your favorite patriotic colors in a delicious frosty treat the kids will love. Freeze each layer of the strawberry, vanilla, and blueberry shake separately to get the pretty alternating colors.

    • White: Peppermint Frost

      Frosty peppermint drinks may make you dream of December, but this pure-white cocktail is worth the July jump. Peppermint schnapps and crushed mints keep each sip minty and refreshing -- perfect for hot summer days.

      Drink Recipe Tip: Rim each glass with a mix of red and white sugars (add blue, too!) to enhance the 4th of July celebration.
