I can't wait to mix them up and try this weekend!!   Hope you all enjoy!

1. Fourth of July Cocktail from Guy Fieri

A thin slice of jalapeno or serrano pepper adds a fiery kick to this tequila-based cocktail, which gets it's pretty colors from cranberry juice, watermelon schnapps, and blue curacao. *Provided by Food Network*

2. Strawberry Sucker

Strawberry schnapps, vodka, and club soda make up this sweet & fizzy afternoon drink. Add a skewer of blueberries for a splash of blue!

3. Watermelon Mint Cooler


• 4 cups seedless watermelon chunks (about 1 pound)
• 1 1/2 cups lemonade
• 1/2 cup fresh mint
• blackberries for garnish (optional)


In a blender, puree the watermelon and lemonade; strain if desired.  Stir in the mint and serve over ice. For an instant cocktail: Stir in 1/2 cup vodka or tequila before serving.
Garnish with a blackberries.

4. Patriotic Margarita

This pretty drink gets it's striped look from a layer of blue HPNOTIQ Liqueur topped with a red layer made from strawberry puree, dark rum, coconut milk, pineapple juice, fresh lime juice, and crushed ice.

5. Red, White, and HPNOTIQ Blue Martini

Blue liqueur and grenadine give this citrus vodka-based martini it's patriotic flair. Garnished coconut adds a touch of white!
