Celebrating America’s Birthday

Ahhh, there is nothing better than family, fun and perhaps some adult beverages.  Although we stayed in town, we had a relaxing staycation…and with kids, staycations are just easier!  Here are some photos of the weekend – pool time at friends, coordinating smocked dresses (what’s more Patriotic than that?!) and whipping up a batch of frose while drinking a mule (holiday behavior!):

Super easy recipe for frose- freeze a bottle of Rose (Pinot Noir blend) in a Ziploc for at least 6 hours.  Make strawberry syrup by boiling 2 cups of strawberries and 1/2 cup of sugar.  Turn off heat and let sit for 20-30 min.  Strain and regrigerate.  Mix frozen Rose, 1/2 cup of strawberry syrup, juice from 1 lemon and a 1/2 cup of ice cubes.  You can refreeze once blended, but I prefer it as is- slushy but still easy to drink.  And let’s be honest, I can’t wait any longer to drink it!

Sharing is Caring!
