Fourth of July festivities are right around the corner and we love any excuse to gather with friends and family in celebration. Whether you are hosting a backyard bash, attending a firework extravaganza or just looking forward to the sunshine and long weekend, these fun, easy-to-make cocktails are guaranteed to liven up any holiday menu.

Froze – Frozen Rose


This blended goodness combines our favorite summertime refresher with a kick of nostalgia that brings us back to the good ole days of yummy slushies. Simply freeze a bottle of rosé into a pan and let sit for six hours, whip up some simple syrup and blend. With a fool proof recipe (no really, it’s too easy) and the best name ever, your guests will be begging for Froze All Day.

Sparkling Sangria

We know sangria is an instant crowd pleaser especially on hot summer nights, so we love this color coordinated rendition that integrates red (raspberry or strawberries), white (granny smith apples) and blue (blueberries or blackberries)! Gimme Some Oven blogger nails it with adorable star cut outs, a simple DIY detail that goes a long way. Can’t wait to bring this to our bar cart this weekend!

Normally we wouldn’t put ice cubes in our bubbly, but this weekend we’re topping off our chilled prosecco with adorable red and blue berrylicious ice cubs to bring a party to your flute! If you decide to ditch the creative cubes, we still suggest plopping your berries into your glass for an infused flavor and pop of color.  Top if off with some bright straws like Mom.Me and you’ve got cocktails & decor crossed off the list! Yum.
