Patriotic Layered Lemonades

Patriotic Layered Lemonades are a festive way to celebrate the Fourth of July!

Happy (almost) Fourth of July, friends!

Who’s ready to celebrate America’s birthday?!! RAISES HAND! 

I don’t know about you, but I need a timeout for a hawt second. I know that I’ve mentioned here that I have been in major nesting mode. BUT! To be completely honest, I think I am in overdrive. As in if I have a down second, I freak out and think to myself, “Why aren’t you doing something?” 

It’s a nasty snowball that lead me to almost wanting to do nothing which is not good. So I have decided to take it easy this week. Enjoy the celebration of our country’s birthday, relax with Mr. B and Juniper, and get done what I can get done.

And I can’t think of a better way to enjoy the moment than by serving up a few  glasses of these Patriotic Layered Lemonades. Seriously, are these not festive AF? Frozen blueberries, strawberries and spiked lemonade layered in a pretty glass. The red, white and blue never looked so good! 

These can be prepped ahead of time. Simply freeze all the ingredients separately in the freezer and once an order comes through just layer all the ingredients into a glass. Just don’t forget the festive flag garnish. 

Hope y’all have a wonderful and safe Fourth of July! Cheers!
