4 for the Fourth!

4 Treats for the Fourth | dotted design Ah, it’s always so lovely when a national holiday falls so nicely on a Friday, making for a summery long weekend. It’s the perfect excuse to have a barbeque or at least have a festive drink. Here are four treats to make your Fourth a bit more sparkly!

1) strawberry basil gin & tonic, a cozy kitchen with a patriotic straw: G&Ts are typically my drink of choice for the summertime. Throwing in some sweet berries and herb-y basil makes my mouth absolutely water! (Pink and green is almost like red and blue, right?)

2) red, white & blueberry trifle, skinnytaste: A gem from one of my favorite food blogs, this trifle would be the perfect light dessert for any gathering.

3) blackberry, rosemary & yogurt ice pops, food52: I officially declare this the summer of the fancy popsicle. I can’t open my Pinterest feed without finding some crazy concoction on a stick. This one looks just to die for. (As my husband would attest, I am obsessed with rosemary as of late!) You could even add a layer of a red yogurt to make them little more festive.

4) Happy Fourth! printable download: A little freebie from me to you! Perfect for any table or gift bag as you celebrate.

What are your plans for the holiday weekend? Hope it is lovely!
