Blueberries and Cream Sparklers featuring IZZE Sparkling Juice

And now, an ode to my backyard:

Readers of this blog and/or my insta followers are probably aware that we did a major backyard overhaul this year. We built seven new garden beds, hauled in literal tons of new soil, rearranged the entire layout and planted our biggest garden ever. Also, we added a hammock, because priorities. Now when I work from home on Fridays, I work from my hammock!

Our tomatoes, zucchinis and green beans now encircle our seating area, an arbor with hanging plants and a picnic table – the perfect gathering spot.

And this weekend, to top it all off, we busted out the string lights. The yard just looked magical, as we chatted with friends into the night. I think that calls for a drink under the twinkling skies, don’t you?

One of the biggest reasons we changed our backyard was to make more of the space useful for gardening – but we also wanted to focus on one of our other favorite activities: entertaining friends.

I’ve created this Blueberries and Cream Sparkler in partnership with IZZE Sparkling Juice just in time for the holiday get-togethers. I love the flavor of whipped cream mixing with the bubbly juice (and you know I added a little bit of booze, too!)  All you have to do is add the party! I love pairing a drink like this with salty snacks.
