Tropical Strawberry Swirl Daiquiri
Nothing says summer like a nice fruity cocktail. This Tropical Strawberry Swirl Daiquiri already has the red and white, so all you need to add is a little blue.
You can leave this recipe be, or add a few fun blueberries on top, or a festive straw to really get the celebration going.

Pie is an American classic, and these adorable personal-sized hand pies are a great little dessert for the 4th of July holiday.

You can make these ahead of time and freeze them, so they can maintain their texture, and you can get the rest of your party prepped without worry.
