Let’s salute our fallen heroes with this Drink of the Week!
Let’s take a minute to salute those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us and our country this Memorial Day Weekend. This weekend will be filled with family vacations, beach trips, and backyard cookouts with the neighbors.
We kept those good old fashioned American cookouts in mind for this Drink of the Week. This Tequila Blackberry Lemonade is a perfect addition to any summer cookout. You can make them ahead of time and serve them from a pitcher. You can even give this drink more of an American Summertime feel by serving them in Mason Jars. This drink is incredibly refreshing, and we even kicked in this easy homemade lemonade recipe, from Happy Hooligans, if you don’t want to use the store bought kind.
Here’s to a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend for all, and a big Thank You to all those who have gone before us. Cheers, to you!
