Tomorrow’s 4th of July. Next thing you know Santa will be coming to town. Where is the time going lately? Augh…sigh.
Anyhow, I saw these beautious layered drinks (http://lmld.org/2013/06/30/fourth-of-july-layered-drinks/) on one of my BBF’s (Best Blogger Friends) Aimee’s blog, Like Mother, Like Daughter (http://www.lmld.org – sorry my link insert button seems to be on vacation) – how cute, right? So I thought I’m gonna try my hand at those for the 4th, but make them ‘adult friendly’ with some boozey goodness. I went out, bought all the stuff, and probably tried three times to recreate this layered perfection. What was the outcome? Purple yuck.
So I thought before wasting more ingredients, I would do something that I know would work and be equally as fun to look at and great to drink – slushies! Like those refreshing Mint Julep slushies from Derby Weekend, I’ve really wanted to try another cocktail in slushy form. And what better time to do it than on one of the most steamy holidays of the year? 4th of July! MURICA! These couldn’t be easier to put together and can also be made kid friendly by swapping out the Blue Curacao with blue gatorade and holding the vodka.
And don’t forget about that fabu Plated giveaway – 4 free plates and one month membership to one lucky winner!
