Celebrate with a Red, White and Blue Culinary Twist

Celebrate Independence Day by crafting up a colorful patriotic color scheme in your Jasper kitchen. You don’t have to nosh on hot dogs and burgers to make it a celebration. Whatever your culinary palette is craving, you can add a playful red, white and blue twist. From cocktails to a coconut cream cake, we’re using a medley of fresh tomatoes, berries and blue corn, plus peppers to add some flashy flare to each course of this fiesta. Cheers to a Happy Fourth of July!

Let Red, White & Blue Margaritas set the playful tone that this spread is not your typical BBQ.

Freshen up your options with the Sparkling Hibiscus Berry Cocktail. Hibiscus tea, fresh berries, and lemon sparkling water combine with vodka to make the most incredible summer drink that’s light and refreshing. Want something refreshing without the alcohol? Simply blend some watermelon with ice and make a watermelon slushie!

Mango Salsa. Sweet and salty, this salsa best scoops with some big Blue corn chips. Plus, it’s so colorful that it almost looks like confetti up-close.  White Bean Dip with Sundried Tomatoes also makes a great choice with those Blue corn chips!

Cooking for two or more? Create your own taco bar with different types of fixings and toppings.

Shrimp Tacos with Pineapple. All you need is one baking sheet and a hot broiler. These look beautiful but taste even better.

Carne Asada Street Tacos. These are fast, easy and full of flavor. Top with onion, cilantro + fresh lime juice.

Shredded Chicken Tacos. These are the BEST easy Instant Pot Shredded Chicken Tacos, hands down.

Carnitas Tacos. Seasoned with flavors like oregano, cumin, chili powder and lime juice. Delish!

Roasted Street Corn. This street corn is super easy to make on and is the perfect side dish that everyone will enjoy.

Salsa Verde. Salsa verde might be one of the best condiments on earth.

Fiesta Rice. Now it’s a party. The tomatoes, corn and black beans give this beautiful color.

Homemade Tortillas. The glue that holds your whole meal together.

Angel Food Cake with Coconut Whipped Cream and Berries. The coconut whipped cream is going to rock your world. Plus, it’s studded with berries for a colorful burst of red, white and blue.
