Red, White and Blue Margaritas for the 4th of July

By Ole & Shaina Olmanson |

If you’re looking for a way to cool down this 4th of July, try kicking back with one of these. Both strawberry and lime margaritas make a statement, and the addition of frozen blueberries adds a festive kick.

If you don’t drink or are looking to make one for the kids, don’t worry. These can be made with or without spirits, and they taste just as good.

For these, make each of the two varieties separately, and then pour half on one side of your glass and half on the other. Swirl and top with blueberries and a lime wedge and you’re ready to watch the fireworks.

1 cup ice
1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
3 ounces tequila
2 ounces lime juice
1 ounce Triple Sec or Cointreau
1/2 ounce simple syrup

2 ounces lime juice
