Patriotic Berry Fizz

The combination of raspberry vodka, blueberry schnapps, sprite and grenadine.


Ready or not, the 4th of July is just 4 days away!


Are you ready?


Are you ready to admit that the year is half over?  Me either.


Patriotic Berry Fizz is the PERFECT cocktail for the 4th of July!  


And just look at it!  Isn't it pretty!!  Those colors make me want to just dive in and drink it all up.


OK, maybe not "dive" in because......you know, the schnapps and grenadine will get you all sticky and such.  So maybe just a big straw?


This cocktail is another one of my layered cocktails.  But really, it looks more like an ombre then a layered cocktail.  Oh I like that.....ombre!



I mean check out that ombre!


Usually I don't care too much for a "bubbly" cocktail, but the amount of lemon-lime soda in this cocktail is quite refreshing!  


Not only is it fun to look at, it's delicious to drink too!


And of course you need to garnish it with fresh blueberries and raspberries!  Mmmmm.



Make sure you garnish and have a bowl on the side.  You just may want to dunk a few more in as you enjoy your cocktail!




OH WAIT!!  I didn't tell you!  We got a pool!  OK, no we didn't dig a HUGE hole in our backyard.


We bought an above the ground pool!!  This pool by Intex to be exact!  It's a 12' pool.  The kids have swam EVERY........SINGLE..........DAY since we've gotten it!  It's the perfect size for our yard (they have smaller and bigger ones too).  My husband purchased a cover, filter, chlorine tablets and something else I can't remember to make it perfect for the kids.  We got EVERYTHING on Amazon and we are sooo excited about it!





It's the perfect size for my 3 youngest to play around and have a blast!  We could even toss a few more kids in there and there would still be PLENTY of room!


I hope your plans for the 4th include some delicious food and drinks!  I sure know mine will!  I have a feeling that there will be a lot of BBQing, hor dourve eating and alcohol drinking over the next few days in our family!


OK, onto the recipe.......because I know that's why you all are here!
