How to Make your Fourth Festive

Tuesday, June 26, 2018 3:30 AM

Happy Tuesday Loves! 

There is just a little over a week left before our Nation's Birthday and 
I have compiled a few of my favorite decorations to really pop off your fourth! 

I have almost everything in order, as we are headed to the beach on Friday and will stay throughout the Fourth. 

There is still time left to order fun and patriotic themed party decorations.

What are your Independence Day plans?

4th of July Sangria

Serves: 1 pitcher
  • 4 cups or 1 bottle (750 mL is close enough to 4 cups...) favorite white wine, suggest Riesling
  • 2 cups flavored soda water (I used raspberry/blackberry)
  • 1 ounce Triple Sec
  • ½ ounce simple syrup (1:1 sugar to water, heated and then cooled), optional for sweeter sangria
  • 1 cup strawberries, frozen
  • 1 cup blueberries

  1. Combine all ingredients in carafe/pitcher.
  2. You can leave fruit out until serving, if desired. Strawberries may cloud sangria if left overnight.
  3. Chill and serve very cold over ice.
  4. Enjoy!
