Summer Spritzers to Sip and Share

Jun 07, 2016 04:33AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Lifestyle




(Family Features) No gathering on a warm summer day is complete without an array of food and chilled refreshments. This summer, add some fun to the beverage cart with fresh, fruity spritzers that make any occasion feel like a beach getaway.

A refreshingly vibrant, light-bodied option, Barefoot Refresh Spritzers are perfect served alone or blended with seasonal ingredients for flavorful cocktails that guests will be thrilled to sip and savor. Better yet, for those who enjoy wine in the sunshine, these spritzers now come in single-serve cans that can be enjoyed by the pool, on the porch or anywhere a fully stocked cooler can be found. For larger summer bashes, prepare pitchers filled with spritzer cocktails and punches ahead of time or encourage guests to get creative by concocting their own blends. Just set out a selection of mixers, along with fresh fruits and herbs, such as mint leaves, to mix things up.

On-the-Go Summer Party Supplies
Summer calls for outdoor celebrations and whether it’s a day at the beach, a backyard cookout or a rooftop party, you can take the good times with you with little more than a cooler full of drinks and a few of these summer essentials.

  • Sunscreen. The first step to fun in the sun is protecting yourself from a day spent outdoors by applying sunscreen to any exposed skin.
  • Snacks. No outdoor gathering is complete without a bite to eat, so be sure to pack some simple snacks, such as fresh fruits, dips, rollups or kabobs to satisfy the munchies.
  • Party games. For larger areas such as beaches or parks, take along a volleyball or badminton net. If you’re limited to a smaller backyard or picnic table, activities such as bean bag toss, board games or cards are sure to help set a fun mood.
  • Bluetooth speaker. With a speaker that connects to your phone via Bluetooth, you can pull up a music streaming app and take the party with you.
  • Disposable dishes and utensils. No one likes cleaning up after a party, especially if it means packing dirty dishes back into the car, so take along a trash bag and disposable plates, cups and utensils to make cleanup easy.

Yes, You Can
When the temperatures climb, it’s natural to reach for a refreshing drink to cool down. However, many of the places you’d most enjoy a sip of wine or a spritzer – such as pools, beaches and parks – are locations where wine glasses and bottles aren’t usually welcome.

That’s why cans are a growing trend among some of your favorite summertime beverages, which make it easy to enjoy a drink when and where you want, giving any moment a touch of summer. After all, sleek, lightweight single-serve cans are easy to carry and pack in coolers, beach bags and tubs of ice.

Look for options such as Barefoot Refresh Spritzers, which are flavorful, light and lively beverages with a signature spritz. Two refreshing flavors – Crisp White and Summer Red – are delicious straight from a chilled can, poured over ice or mixed in a cocktail.
