You've planned your party and picked your menu, but have you thought about the drinks you'll be serving this weekend? Sure, you could throw a few beers on ice, but why not impress your guests with a deliciously easy 4th of July cocktail?
We've created one of our own for you, and we've included nine more of our red, white, and blue favorites from across the web. Happy 4th!
Red, White, and Blue Sparkling Sangria
Simmer 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup mint, and the juice of one lemon until sugar has dissolved. Let cool for 20 minutes, strain out the mint leaves, then combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and serve over ice. Garnish with a few mint sprigs.
Niki comes to us from the financial world, but she’s an online girl at heart. After graduating from Cal, she spent a couple of years traveling and working (Ireland – NY – OC) before finally making it back to San Francisco to pursue a career in business and marketing. An avid fan of handwritten thank you notes, Niki also loves fresh flowers for any occasion, the sound of being underwater, and she firmly believes ketchup bottles do not belong on the breakfast table. When she’s not Musing, you can find her on her blog, wandering around the Ferry Building in San Francisco, or with her nose in a ridiculously addicting YA book.More from this Author
