Creating the perfect 4th of July cocktail for your gathering with friends is such a fun way to start the celebrating. But while your guests sip away, waiting for you to fire up the grill or for dinner to be served, why not have some delicious hors d'oeuvres set out for everyone to enjoy? We've been busy choosing some great medleys of summer snacks that are easy to make and are just the right amount of food to curb your hunger. For the 4th, we think our Red White & Silver cocktail using Patrón Silver and Patrón Citrónge pairs well with sweet potato skewers and gazpacho. The sweet fruits and citrus in the drink balance the savory flavors in the food, satisfying that pre-party twinge of hunger and thirst.
Directions: muddle the strawberries and blueberries in the Patrón Silver and Patrón Citrónge for about 15 seconds. Strain into a glass filled with ice and squeeze a wedge of lime into the cocktail. Stir and serve.
