I’ll Drink to That


Are you looking for a festive adult beverage to serve your guests for the 4th of July?

This one will get some ohhhs and ahhhs and it’s tasty too!
Just three ingredients and a little patience and everyone will think you are sooo creative! Sorry I don’t have measurements but hopefully you can get an idea from the picture.

The Red is Grenadine
The White is Lemonade, mixed as normal
The Blue is UV Blue, raspberry flavored vodka

We can usually get my son in law to mix these up for us every 4th.  The secret is you layer the liquids one at a time by very slowly pouring it down the side of the glass.

I love the 4th of July with all the flag waving colors and American traditions.  Almost always Mr. Brown Socks and I host our large, extended family.

  We make home made ice cream, play badminton in the backyard, eat ourselves silly all day and close the evening with a few fireworks.

This year for a variety of reasons it wasn’t working out for as many to gather here PLUS my aerobics instructor included us with a large group of people to their house next week.  Her husband is a chef so I’m happy to let someone else do the cooking this year! 
I decided to share a table I set a couple of years ago.  Since I’ve been a very neglectful blogger I’m quite sure few of you have seen this.

Let me know if you try this purdy drink!

What a fun drink to serve. We always do the 4th at our house, too, but I'm not sure we will be home from traveling this year. Hope you have a ball letting someone else cook this time- xo Diana

That drink looks amazing. It's hard to believe the colors don't blend. We had a quieter 4th than usual too. Love your red, white and blue tablescape. I don't remember seeing it before, so enjoyed it.

Hi Donna! I've been away for awhile; and I'm just getting caught up on my blog reading. Looks like you had a Happy 4th! This is a beautiful drink! Hope all is well!

Hi darling, I absolutely love when you stop by, you always touch my heart..How's the carpet coming? Have they completed everything so you can start putting everything back together?
I definitely think there's a market for deer antlers.. they are so hot right now. Most people are buying them off Ebay and giving a fortune for them.. honey you zoom in on that and make a ton... Hope things are well your way..
hugs ~lynne~

Cool drink! I pinned it and can't wait to try it. My son was a bar tender in college and taught me some pouring tricks. I will show him this. How you doing Donna? :) xo

Oh this drink will be perfect for the 4th. How clever and fun to drink. Your table is ready for the 4th too. Very well done. You may want to change who can make comments to cut out the Anonymous comments. I had to do that.
