Festive 4th: Cocktails & Garnishes

4th of July decorations

Vons.com has some great July 4th cocktail (or mocktail) inspiration. I’m especially loving these watermelon stars – simple idea, but super cute!

For an unique signature drink idea, check out these Blueberry Limoncellos garnished with a blueberry skewer (or alternate blueberries & raspberries for a patriotic feel), or – even easier – try using frozen grapes in place of traditional ice cubes to add some color to clear sodas & cocktails.

I’m such a fan of garnishes, I think they take your drink or special dish to a whole new level!. I’ve done the watermelon garnish before, try not to use too-ripe watermelon, they are too mushy and fall apart.
