Fourth of July Summer Cocktail

We have blueberries coming out of our ears (figuratively speaking), so I wanted to share a quick and easy summer cocktail that happens to be perfect for your Fourth of July Red + White + Blue celebrations.

I’m a simple gal when it comes to my celebratory beverages. You probably already have everything you need to mix up a little summer fun!

Make it fun:

  • Use a cookie cutter to cut your strawberries into star shapes

  • If you like a sweeter drink, you can use lemon-lime soda in place of the club soda, or dip the rim of the glass in sugar before making your drink.

  • Prefer your beverage sans alcohol? Jazz up your sparkling water with the blueberries and strawberries!
