Fourth of July. Independence Day. America's ('Merica?) Birthday.
Whatever you want to call it, celebrate it. Reflect on it. Our country's independence & everything we stand for, and also the best part of our country -- freedom. The women & men who continue to fight for this amazing freedom & country we have, day after day.
This is definitely one of my most favorite holidays (besides Thanksgiving & my birthday.....ok the last was a joke but...) for ALL of the reasons above, but also over time has meant spending quality time with friends & family. I can't really put it into words any other way other than how I just love this holiday.
If you're looking for an easy, refreshing cocktail (or leave out the alcohol if you wish!) in the summertime heat to make this weekend to bring to a BBQ or the beach with friends or family, this is my ultimate favorite & oh-so simple. I'm no bartender, so trust me that this is easy ;)
-1 part vodka to 2 parts lemonade (John & I like the low calorie, low sugar lemonade as it's not as sweet & doesn't hurt our stomachs)
-frozen or fresh blueberries for garnish
Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher & serve. Or put a straw in the pitcher & enjoy yourself :)
Enjoy your holiday weekend, have fun, be safe & God Bless America :)
