Fourth of July Cocktails

Red, White, & Blue

I love holidays! They are always a time to get together with friends and family and CELEBRATE!! And what’s a holiday celebration without a festive cocktail?! I was so inspired by the gorgeous cocktails by nest of posies that I just had to make my own version! As always, this cocktail is super clean and healthy. The other plus is that it’s a great beverage for adults AND kids!

You’ll need:

  • 1 liter Sparkling Mineral Water
  • 2 Lemons
  • 2 squeezes of liquid Stevia
  • Ice
  • organic blueberries
  • organic strawberries cut into wedges
  • 1 -2 peaches cut into slices
  • mint

For the kids (virgin recipe): Squeeze lemons, add mineral water and stevia to taste.  Next add bluberries, strawberries, and peaches. You can muddle them alone or with mint to make a fruity cocktail but I wanted to keep the red, white and blue color scheme so decided to skip it. Serve over ice and sip through a fabulous glass straw from Glass Dahrma or festive red & white candy stripe straw.

For the Adults: Follow the recipe above and add a couple ounces of your favorite vodka and a splash of Cointreau and mix well.

I LOVE using Stevia as a sweetener!! It is calorie free, sugar free, and a life saver if you are looking to control your weight. I always order my stevia through iherb.com they have the absolute best prices!! I like NuNaturals brand liquid stevia, it’s the best tasting – the rest taste like aspartame, yuck! Since you’re fabulous, use my discount code WAG472 to get $5 off your first order + free shipping on orders of $20 or more. Enjoy your holiday cocktail and have a very happy holiday!
