Celebrating The 4th With Spritzers

Happy July 4th!
What a special & important day for our country.
I can’t help but be sentimental on a day such as today.
Sharing the significance with my oldest son, Shane
makes it all the more special this year because he really gets it
& is excited to ask questions and learn.
Which is fun!
In honor of our beautiful country
I thought I would make a little celebratory cocktail for later
some cocktails for the kids to enjoy,
all in the spirit of today.

  1. Hey Jen! What kind of wine did you use? I have a bottle of Reisling, but I’m thinking maybe chardonnay would be yummy too?
