Happy almost 4th of July! For me, it’s not officially summer until this patriotic holiday comes around. Cocktails will be in full swing this weekend, and lately my liquor of choice has been tequila, specifically this Strawberry Tequila Sour. I’m typically a bourbon gal, but when the weather gets hotter and I’m laying by the pool, tequila is where it’s at. This cocktail mixes ripe strawberries, coconut water, and sour limes to create the perfect refreshing treat. I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday, enjoy responsibly!
