Memorial Day is one of those tricky holidays. It's snuggled right between Mother's Day + Father's Day, and has the title of being the unofficial start to summer. Do you go away for the weekend? Or do you kick it at home and throw a BBQ? For me, lucky (or unlucky) enough, Memorial Day always falls a few days shy of my birthday, so the festivities are always in high gear!
This year, we teamed up with IZZE to create a refreshing, boozy, delightful cocktail to sip on while enjoying your own Memorial Day festivities. With a few simple ingredients, you'll have a perfectly crafted cocktail that'll not only make for a beautiful landscape on your party table, but also a smile for your boozy taste buds.
Stay tuned with Food and the City, as we take on more IZZE challenges through the rest of 2015!
creates 2 margs
1 12fl oz bottle of IZZE Sparkling Blueberry
3 oz Tequila of choice
1.5 oz fresh lime juice
Fresh blueberries + lime slices for garnish
*optional: salt for rim
Combined all of the ingredients except for the garnishes in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Give it a quick mix, then equally pour contents into additional glasses filled with ice. Garnish each drink with fresh blueberries and lime wedges and enjoy!
Tip: Serving these in mason jars with some blue and red striped straws makes this drink extra festive and fun for Memorial Day!
