Indulge: Red White and Blueberries!

Good morning US of A!  With Fourth of July just around the corner, we thought we’d do a little something refreshing since it’s been so hot throughout this gorgeous summer.  Now we love our fair share of hotdogs and hamburgers just like every other American, but sometimes you want something a little bit … lighter.  Call me crazy, but a bikini and burger aren’t always the best match *unless you’re on a Carl’s Jr. commercial*.

That is why this season, we’ve come up with a perfectly festive cocktail and a yogurt parfait in the glorious red, white and blue!

Hard Lady Liberty Cocktail
1 part vodka
1 part pink lemonade
dash of sparkling water
top with blueberries

Bubbly Lady Liberty Cocktail
1 part sparkling wine
1 part pink lemonade
top with blueberries


While we made a larger serving of the yogurt parfait, a great alternative is to buy a bunch of mini plastic shot glasses or cups and that way you can serve a lot of smaller portions to a larger group!  This is also the perfect snack for kids who are partaking in the festivities, so they get something healthy other than just chips and dogs.

Red, White and Blueberry Parfait
vanilla greek yogurt (we went crazy and did vanilla, blueberry and raspberry for color!)
top with fresh or frozen berry mix to make it a chiller parfait!
add nilla wafers, granola, cereal or graham crackers for an extra crunch!
