Now is the time to really kick up your heels and enjoy summertime! The fireflies are dancing their dance, the frogs are singing and the night sky remains bright way past the children’s bedtimes. Yes, it is that time of year when we should be having the time of lives.
For your next outdoor entertaining event, add a little something fun to the occasion. Besides tubs full of bottled waters, beers, and sodas, try having a few ingredients on hand that will lighten things up and add a nice touch. These red, white, and blue cocktails are super simple to make and takes only a little bit of preparation beforehand to make sure that ice cubes are ready to go. The base of the drink is kept purposely simple since the ice cubes will add a bit of sweetness as they melt.

2 cups cranberry-apple juice
