An American Cocktail For The Family.
How the Accomplished Hostess mixes a drink efficiently!
Hi lovely! Independence Day is coming up next weekend and chances are you're hosting a 4th of July party at the house. Or you're invited over to your friends' house and you're thinking what can I make really fast that's a hit with everyone? So this 4th of July cocktail is for you: it's super easy, fast to make, don't really have to measure much and both kids and adults can have it - except the adults get to spike it. Peeeeerfect!
Red, White & Blue Fizzy - A 4th Of July Cocktail
Everyone who knows me knows that I'm a great cook but not a baker and that's because measuring anything bores me really quickly. Yeah, I have the attention span of a 5-year old. No shame, just not my thing - I prefer to cook with my eyes and my taste buds. OK, back to our 4th of July cocktail: the Red, White & Blue Fizzy. Here we go:

Pretty easy, right? This is what I used:
- Pina Colada mix. I used the Mr & Mrs T brand because that's what I had in hand. Not the healthiest option but it's 4th of July, ok?
- Cherry 7 Up
- Grenadine. If you've never used Grenadine it's this amazing syrop that's both tart and sweet, and it's particularly amazing on a Tequilla Sunrise cocktail!
- Organic blueberries. I use a lot of them because I, of course, spike my Red, White & Blue Fizzy so I like to eat my blueberries after I drink the cocktail when they're soaked with rum!
- For adults, add a splash of rum
And that's all! I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do (I am a hard core Pina Colada fanatic). Oh, and how beautiful is the glass we used? It's a mid-century beauty, very much reminescent of the Mad Men era.
