Strawberry Sparklers - A 4th of July Drink with Sandra Lee Cocktail Time™ Strawberry Margaritas

For the past couple of years, I have posted a fun, colorful cocktail, perfect for the 4th of July…and this year is no different.  In 2013, I shared a recipe for Patriotic Punch, complete with a Pop Rock rim - in 2014, a Flagarita.

This year, I’m excited to share these Strawberry Sparklers made with Sandra Lee Cocktail Time™  Strawberry Margaritas!  There is a Cocktail Time™ Key Lime Margarita available as well. These ready to serve products are infused with real key limes and strawberries, pure cane sugar, premium blue agave silver tequila, triple sec liqueur and other natural flavors.  

I’ve followed Sandra Lee for years – she’s creative, shows how entertaining can be easy, designs beautiful tablescapes and of course always knows when “It’s Cocktail Time!”

These Strawberry Sparklers come together very quickly – I made them individually, but you could also multiply the ingredients to combine in a pitcher and then serve.  I thought the striped paper straws and “firework” picks were perfect for the holiday!  But, if you aren’t celebrating the 4th, you can skewer a couple of strawberries and blueberries and lay across the top of the glass for garnish. 

Earlier this year Sandra Lee launched her Cocktail Time™  products and they can be found in liquor stores such as Total Wine and BevMo.  Unfortunately, in May, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a bilateral mastectomy but is recovering well and is ready to beat this and get back to her life.  This hit close to home as I received my own breast cancer diagnosis in January 2013 – you can read my story here. 

Independence Day is one of Sandra Lee’s favorite holidays - I am excited to share this idea for your 4th of July festivities this year!  

Toasting to you on your birthday today, Sandra Lee, with these Strawberry Sparklers!  Happy Birthday and keep fighting the hard fight - you’ve got this!
