‘Merica Martini
1 ½ oz vodka
½ oz triple sec
½ oz sweet and sour
½ oz blue curacao
1 dash grenadine

Mix all the ingredients together except the grenadine and pour in a martini glass. Add in your grenadine and put your party pants on!

Star Spangled Sprite

Try this easy concoction for an alcohol free drink idea! Create a festive drink by layering red fruit punch, blue Gatorade and Sprite. The key is to put the drink with the highest sugar content on the bottom so start with the fruit punch, slowly pour in the blue Gatorade and top with Sprite. The kids will love it!

Patriotic Pizza
1 package sugar cookie dough (for base)
8 oz package cream cheese
8 oz container Cool Whip
¼ cup confectioners’ sugar
1 pint strawberries
1 pint raspberries
1 pint blueberries

Lay the sugar cookie dough out on a cookie sheet so that it covers it entirely. Bake according to package directions. Blend together the cream cheese, Cool Whip and sugar and spread mixture on top of your sugar cookie base. Top with fruit in a pattern that resembles the American flag (shown in slideshow). This light, fresh dessert is the perfect dish to bring to any Memorial Day get together!
