Mocktail Monday // Red, White and Blue Mocktail

Red, White & Blue Mocktail @themerrythoughtI can’t believe the 4th of July is this Friday!! Time goes by too quickly! We’ve got a busy, but fun week ahead of us; Caitlin’s at the lake for Family Camp (both relaxing & working!), my baby sister, Lyndsay, is coming home today for a week long visit (yay!!), Marla’s crew is headed to Portland, ME, my brother’s coming home for the weekend, and my mom’s side of the family is having their annual 3 day family reunion!  Shew…bring on the summer fun!Red, White & Blue Mocktail @themerrythoughtWe thought for this week’s Mocktail Monday post, it would be fun to share a red, white and blue drink in honor of Independence Day! The flavor of this drink is definitely subtle – it’s more of a presentation drink than a packed with flavor drink.  Although if you muddle the berries a bit before drinking, the flavor is definitely better…and it’s still refreshing on a hot day!  And definitely patriotic!Red, White & Blue Mocktail @themerrythoughtRed, White and Blue Mocktail

¼ cup fresh raspberries (or strawberries)
¾ tps. grenadine
2 tablespoons club soda
crushed ice
lemon-lime soda
fresh blueberries

Place raspberries in the bottom of a tall glass and drizzle the grenadine over them. Next add your club soda. Then fill your glass with crushed ice (all the way to the top) – this separates the blueberries from the raspberries. Slowly pour in your lemon-lime soda – make sure to pour slowly or the grenadine will mix into the soda too much and take away the “white” look! Add a handful of blueberries on top. Sip and enjoy! (I recommend stirring and slightly muddling the raspberries right before drinking to give the drink more flavor).Red, White & Blue Mocktail @themerrythoughtRed, White & Blue Mocktail @themerrythoughtCheers!
