The fourth of July is just a few days away, and I’ve been working hard on my holiday weekend menu. We just got back from a week long vacation, and I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. It was so much fun, but because we are on a cruise, there was so much fun to be had, we forgot the rest and relaxation part. Hopefully we’ll be able to get a little rest in before the weekend comes.

As for our holiday menu, I know I want to smoke some ribs. My favorite thing to do when we’re lounging around our backyard is to have some pork smoking. The smell is just intoxicating. I also want to make some simple sides like fresh grilled corn and probably some grilled fruit and veggie kabobs.

But tot start things off, I’m going to make these Berry Bellinis for my guests. These are so simple to make. I just used a bottle of Smirnoff ICE Original mixed with some frozen mixed berries. For extra flavor, you could also add a shot of a raspberry or blueberry schnapps. Then just simply blend the ingredients on high in the blender and serve with fresh fruit.

This is a great cocktail to make for the fourth of July, or any summer cookout. It’s light and refreshing and can also easily be made for the little ones by replacing the Smirnoff Ice with sparkling water.
