it’s finally friday and it’s a long weekend! we’re excited to kick back with friends and family, enjoy the day off and spend time remembering all of the men and women who fought and died for our country. if you’re hosting a bbq or just enjoying the day outdoors with a few friends this rosé punch is the thing to make. it’s super simple, partially hydrating thanks to the sparkling water and not too strong so you can enjoy a couple of glasses on ice.
we used barefoot rosé as it’s on the sweeter side and provides a nice balance with the citrus. it’s also very affordable so you won’t have to break the bank to fill up your entire punch bowl!
what you’ll need: quantities vary depending on the size of your punch bowl.
8 cups barefoot rosé
juice of 3 lemons
juice of 2 grapefruits
2 cups lemonade
2 cups sparkling citrus water (we used grapefruit)
optional simple syrup to taste (we didn’t use any but if you want it to be sweeter, go for it!)
we purchased edible flowers from here. you could also do floral or fruit ice cubes or even frozen fruit skewers as a garnish. if you do the skewers, make sure the fruit is wet before you freeze it so if gives you that nice icy look for serving.
what are your memorial day weekend plans? are you planning to make any recipes that you’re excited about?
