Why are party beverages so overlooked? They deserve a little dazzle and themed detail too 😉 Today I’m going to show how EASY and SIMPLE it is to add a major punch (no pun intended) at the beverage bar. ha! I make myself laugh.
First, lets start with the ice cubes. No more last minute trips to the nearest gas station to pick up the XL bag of those awkward WAY-TO-BIG chucks. From now on, commit to the cubes. Spending a few minutes each night leading up to your par-tay will add color, detail, and will be just another way to continue with the celebration. This week I’m preparing for July 4th. I’m using red, white, and blue food coloring. I’ve also pulled out those plastic ice cube trays. Find them at the Dolla Store if you don’t have any. 😉
Fruit Cubes… yup, a fav of mine for everyday. Add a few blueberries and diced strawberries to your ice cube trays before placing in the freezer. What a tasty treat you will have once your ice cube melts.
This little drink was inspired from a Cabo San Lucas trip my Husby and I took a couple years ago. We traveled over July 4th week and this blue beverage quenched my thirst all week long. I can’t remember what they called it but I’ve recreated AND renamed it 😉
The Blue Bravery:
- Cherry Sprite
- 2. Grenadine
- 3. Pina Colada Mix
- 4. Blue Koolaid
- fill your glass with ice
- 1/3 of your glass, Cherry Sprite and Grenadine over ice
- 1/3 of your glass, Pina Colada Mix
- 1/3 of your glass, Blue Koolaide
You are layering these! If you have a super tall glass you could repeat the steps for even more aDOORable layers.
aDOORable adults: try adding a little rum to the Blue Bravery for some extra glory.
The fun part- Garnish with patriotic straws and cherries!
