The Easiest Fourth of July Drink

It’s the weekend and time to celebrate. If you’re looking for the Easiest Fourth of July Drink, you’ve found it here!

All you need is two ingredients and you can make it kid friendly too.

This yummy drink doesn’t taste like a mouthful of alcohol and has the extra sweetness of the popsicles.

All you need are these two things:

  • Smirnoff Ice Red, White, and Berry
  • Popsicles (preferably the red, white, and blue rockets)

Yes! That’s it.

All you have to do it pour your Smirnoff Ice in a cup. Then dunk a popsicle.

It always makes me feel like a kid again when I incorporate parts of my childhood. This drink is NO different.

Believe me, the kids will want to join in too.

A perfect substitution is using Sprite or ginger ale with a popsicle. They won’t feel like they’re missing out at all. If your child is anything like Mila, she’ll want to do a cheers.

I figured I’d share a funny story about trying to make these and take pictures.

When I went in my freezer to grab the popsicles, the box was empty. Mila has been sneaking and eating them the last few days. Thankfully she’s thrown the wrappers away!

At this point in the game, it was impossible to find the right popsicles, but others taste just as good.

Just another instance in toddler life!

We hope you enjoy your Fourth of July weekend. I can’t wait to share our adventures with you all.

What’s your favorite red, white, and boozy drink?

Mommy Recipe: Tequila Sunrise

When I think of summer, I think of the sun, pool, and occasional refreshments. One drink I’ve loved for years and looks like summer is the Tequila Sunrise.

Even if you’re not a tequila fan, this drink will win you over. The flavors from the orange juice and grenadine work perfectly together.

The only thing better than this drinks taste is how pretty it looks.

Now that I’ve sold you, here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 ounce of grenadine
  • 4 ounces of orange juice
  • 2 ounces of tequila
  • Ice
  • Maraschino cherries *optional

To make this beautiful drink, shake tequila, orange juice, and ice together. Then strain in an ice filled glass.

Next, use a spoon to pour grenadine over. This way it goes to the bottom. It somehow feels like an adult science experiment. I love seeing the layered look.

Before drinking or serving, lightly stir to create the sunrise effect.

Then you’re done!

You can garnish with maraschino cherries, orange slices, or fondant flowers. I sort of just got lucky to have the extra pretties.

It truly is such a beautiful looking drink and tastes so good too. Since it’s only three ingredients and not a lot of prep time, it’s one of my go to’s! Plus… it’s an easy way to drink tequila.

Boozy Root Beer Floats

Summer season is upon us! I can’t think of anything more nostalgic than root beer floats to drink on a hot day. The kids love it. To step it up a notch for the adults, I add one more ingredient to make Boozy Root Beer Floats.

One of my favorite things about being an adult is putting a twist on my favorite childhood drinks. It seems silly, but it’s a lot of fun to taste. I imagine this is what all the adults did when I was a kid too.

Plus, when it’s only one extra step, it makes it a lot easier to do.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Root Beer
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Whiskey (I used Jack Daniels)
  • Chocolate sauce *optional
  • Maraschino Cherry *optional

All you have to do is make it like a classic root beer float. I add the whiskey in first, then ice cream, and then the root beer. It feels like it mixes up the whiskey the best!

I also like to add chocolate drizzle and maraschino cherries to the top of my root beer floats too. It tastes so good.

This Boozy Root Beer Float drink will be such a summer staple. Mila loves drinking root beer floats too. So, I guess she’ll be motivating me to make them all the time!

What kind of childhood drinks do you like to put an adult spin on?

Mommy Recipe: Pink Whitney Lemonade

If you’re looking for a cool summer drink to enjoy during the hot months, you’ll love this Pink Whitney Lemonade.

Funny story, Mila calls any ‘drink’ I have ‘on my juice.’ It’s a really hilarious way for her to know not to drink what I’m drinking. I think it’s also nice that she thinks it’s just my juice and she has her juice.

Thankfully, she’s not that curious and respects that it’s mine. A little parenting win, right?

Anyways, back to the goods. You’ll love this mommy juice recipe that’s good for anyone who likes adult beverages that you can taste the alcohol.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3/4 cup of Pink Whitney Vokda
  • Ice
  • 1 cup of Lemonade
  • 1 Pink lemonade Kool Aid mix pack
  • Lemon
  • Blender

Honestly guys, I pretty much eyeballed this drink so the measurements aren’t exact. When I make drinks, I do a lot of taste tests!

All you have to do is put a ton of ice in your blender, then all of the other ingredients.

Mix them all until they’re the consistency of a slushee. For extra tartness, I put lemon slices around the glass and to garnish.

This drink is easy to make and goes down smoothly. I feel like they will be DANGEROUS this summer while by the pool or around fires. It’s so yummy, I’ll take the chance though.
