Enjoy Festive Fourth of July Treats

Just as the Fourth of July isn’t complete without fireworks, an Independence Day picnic isn’t the same without delicious red, white, and blue treats! From refreshing appetizers to patriotic cocktails, the possibilities for a celebratory spread are endless. So, to help you start planning your Fourth of July festivities, we’ve crafted two USA-inspired recipes. All you have to do next is figure out your most patriotic party outfit!

Korbel Natural’ Sparkler

  • KORBEL Natural’
  • 1 oz. Strawberry Purèe

Add some patriotic flair to this bubbly beverage by garnishing with a strawberry and blueberries.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

  • 24 + large fresh strawberries (1 1/2 to 2 lbs, depends on how much you fill them)
  • 1 (8oz) package cream cheese, room temperature or softened slightly
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries


Cut the stems from the strawberries, so the strawberries can sit cut-side down.

Cut a deep "X" from the tip down, being careful not to cut all the way through.
Beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a bowl with a hand mixer until nice and fluffy.

Gently open up each strawberry and pipe the filling inside using a pastry bag or zip-top bag with a star piping tip. Don't have a pastry bag or piping tip? Just cut off the corner of a zip-top bag and squeeze the cheesecake filling inside the strawberries that way.

Top each filled strawberry with a blueberry. These are best served after the strawberries have been chilled for at least an hour. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days depending on how firm/soft the strawberries are.
