Fourth of July Drink Recipe – The Red and Blue Sparkler
The Fourth of July is coming! Are you ready? With this lovely drink in your hand, you definitely will be. Everyone needs a little refreshment to cool you off as the heat radiates from your grill. Then, as the sun goes down, the fireworks go up- and I’ve come up with a sweet “firework” of my own that you can share at your Fourth of July party. I call it the “Red and Blue Sparkler” because of the fruit laden swizzle stick that adorns it!
This nonalcoholic beverage is made with Kraft brand Crystal Light Pure plus some strawberries and blueberries.
And here’s where I found the strawberries and blueberries in the “Fresh Produce” section.
The recipe is simplicity itself.
Fourth of July Drink Recipe - The Red and Blue Sparkler
- 4 wooden skewers trimmed to be a few inches longer than the glass
- 1 pint of fresh blueberries
- 8 oz fresh strawberries
- 1 package of Crystal Light Pure drink mix any flavor
- 2 cups chilled drinking water
- 2 cups chilled seltzer water fruit flavored if you like
Make four decorative swizzle sticks by pushing blueberries and strawberries on to the wooden skewers, ending with a strawberry on the bottom. Place the skewers in glasses.
In a pitcher, combine two of the Crystal Light Pure packets with two cups of cold water. Stir until fully dissolved. Add two cups of seltzer water and stir once, gently. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
