Cheers To Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July! My Pom Lily was tired of posing, ha ha!
I'm not sure about you guys but July totally took me by surprise. I've been so blessed this year with work and just life in general that I feel like I haven't stopped since January 1st. So it was great to get a small break mid-week to celebrate the Fourth of July. 

Recently two great companies send along some product that I knew would be perfect to try out during the holiday. I had a few people over for some burgers and fireworks so this was a great opportunity to get opinions from various people. It was also a great time to sit for my favorite photographer from James Woodley Photography. I hope you all like the photos, especially the ones where my precious dog Lily makes a cameo!

Let's start with the non-alcoholic, Onli Beverages. The sparkling drink is chef inspired and made right here in Florida. Included in my sample kit I had a variety of flavors (both sugar-free and sweetened) including Hibiscus Pomegranate, Huckleberry Pomegranate, Lemon Watermelon, Lemon Mango Passion Fruit & Mint, Espresso Swiss Hazelnut, Green Tea Lemongrass Mango, and Hibiscus Strawberry Unsweetened. I personally preferred the sweetened variety but if you're cutting down on sugar or want to keep the calories low the unsweetened are a great option.

Items I can't live without!
I honestly didn't even want to share these with my guest because they were so amazing and refreshing! I sipped a couple while taking a blogging break by the bay while catching up on my favorite magazines. If you visit their website they have some great recipes you can use to make cocktails. In South Florida they have them for sale in Publix and Whole Food Markets. For those of you elsewhere keep your eyes peeled! They are expanding so check this link often to see when it's available near you.

Thanks to Delicia I was able to combine dessert with cocktail hour! I chose the Peaches and Cream flavor to celebrate the fourth but it turned out that because my guests couldn't get enough I had to bring out the Strawberries and Cream I had stashed away! It was literally the perfect way to end the night while watching the fireworks take over the sky.

Below I have some photos to share, hope you like them! I'm dying to know about what you guys did over the Fourth of July holiday! Let me know in the comments.
