Most Americans will spend July Fourth in a festive mood, attending parades, cooking out on the barbecue and just relaxing by enjoying time with family and friends.

With red, white and blue as the definitive party theme, the frozen summer drink of choice this July Fourth is HPNOTIQ’s Patriotic Margarita. This colorful, spirited concoction will add celebration to any summer occasion. HPNOTIQ’s cool blue color is a refreshing taste of premium vodka combined with natural fruit juices and a hint of cognac. With HPNOTIQ as the foundation – um, coconut milk and juices are blended with strawberry puree to create the red portion of the drink. A coconut garnish provides the fun finishing touch. Start your blenders!
