The berry breeze is great for July 4th, and it's sweet, but not too sweet.

Spending the Fourth with family and friends? Try throwing together this simple, refreshing cocktail from Andrea Correale, of Elegant Affairs.

It’s red, clear and blue colors are perfectly patriotic, but it’s refreshing (and not too sweet) all summer long. If you prefer regular vodka to raspberry, simply sub it out and add muddle more crushed raspberries, Correale suggested. As a picnic time bonus, it can be made in big batches ahead of time and simply poured over crushed ice.

Elegant Affairs's Berry Breeze:


1 jigger of raspberry vodka

2 jiggers of white cranberry Juice

frozen crushed raspberries

blueberry skewer garnish


Chill all vodka and cranberry juice and then strain into tall glass filled

with crushed raspberries and ice. Garnish with skewer of blueberries.
