Happy Labor Day weekend everyone!
I'm about to head out with my little boys, my niece, and my parents for a fun day of picnicing at our local dairy and then off to the zoo!  But later this weekend, my hubby and I are busting out the grill and this boozy sparking lemonade.
The awesome folks over at Smirnoff sent me a bottle of their limited edition Red, White, and Berry vodka to celebrate this holiday weekend.  The vodka is flavored with cherry, citrus and sweet blue raspberry. Yum!
When I first opened the bottle and took a whiff, a flood of fond college memories came washing over me.  The Red, White, and Berry Smirnoff smells just like one of my favorite college beverages that my friends and I would enjoy.  My hubby's band is actually playing at the tailgating party for the football game going on this weekend between our 2 alma maters.  I wonder who will get the bragging rights.   My college fight song included the lines:  
"And when we win this game, we'll buy a keg of booze And we'll dink it to the Aggies 'til we wobble in our shoes"  
Needless to say, this boozy sparking lemonade would make a welcome addition to any tailgating party.  
Whether you're tailgating, barbecuing, or just enjoying your weekend off, I hope you get the chance to indulge in some boozy sparkling lemonade.  Just remember to drink responsibly!
