Cocktail ~ Mocktail Recipe For 4th of July

4th of July is here my friends! Who’s ready to kick back and celebrate this weekend? Last year we sent you a special drink recipe to help you get into the Summer spirit. It was a hit! Click here to see last year’s recipe.

This year we’re giving you another festive option. We got the idea for this recipe from and gave it a Rubio’s twist. The original version uses rum, like a traditional mojito. But Jesus loves Tito’s Handmade Vodka. So, we decided to try it with vodka and it turned out great!  You can also make this as a mocktail by not adding alcohol at all. The result will be equally delicious.

Staying Safe For The Fourth


Fireworks are the best! But they can be downright dangerous if not handled with care. Just a few precautions can go a long way to keeping your home and loved ones out of harm's way.

  • Keep a bucket of water close by to soak used fireworks
  • Have a hose ready as well for any rogue flames
  • Remember pets are sensitive to the noise from fireworks, so keep them in the house protected from the exposure to loud sounds
