With all the food you’ll be eating this holiday we think you might be a little thirsty. This patriotic punch is perfect for any backyard outing.
For this drink, you can use your very own choice of juices as long as they’re red, white and blue. The juices used in the photo are cranberry juice, piña colada drink (kid-friendly) and a blue raspberry drink. The layering effect of the juices will only work depending on the amount of sugar in them. For more information about sugar content each juice needs, check out Mom Endeavors suggestions. Once you have filled your glass with the juices top it off with a Twizzlers as straw and enjoy your patriotic punch.
Firework Fruit Kabobs
No better way to get your kiddos to eat fruit than to make them look like stars! These fruit kabobs will have everyone wanting more.
