Today marks the first day of summer, and it's time to get festive get together with friends and family to celebrate the beauty of warmer weather, more opportunities for adventure, and of course delicious summer drinks! I always love inviting friends over for a few summer sips, and we always bounce recipe ideas off of one another.

For this beautiful party setup, I wanted to stick with a sleek, bright, and inviting aesthetic. Mostly white with the pops of red, blue, and silvers. I am seriously over the moon about being able to create a festive party for such a well-known vodka brand, like SVEDKA! It's always my first choice when deciding upon either unflavored or flavored vodka. I know it's always going to be delicious!

I have TONS of great party decor ideas and several recipes for you, just in time for 4th of July Celebrations! If you wind up recreating anything from my post, I'd be honored if you shared a link with me in the comments below! What plans do you have this year?

I always love using paper straws in my party decor, they're so festive and cute! I even added in a cute red glittered star pick, and thought it complimented the SVEDKA pretty well :)

CHERRY RED GELATIN SHOTS RECIPE

I really felt like these had sort of a retro vibe that I just love!!

- 1 Package of red gelatin (I used the SVEDKA brand red strawberry).

- Maraschino Cherries

- SVEDKA Vodka

- Optional: Amaretto and Grenadine

INSTRUCTIONS:

1.) If using the SVEDKA Gelatin, prepare as directed on bow, which is 2 1/2 Cups boiling hot water, 1 package of gelatin, and 1 1/2 C. Vodka. 

2.) Pour into small, shallow plastic dessert cups, and top each one with a cherry! 

3.) These will take a couple of hours to set up, and are so tasty!

Cute Glasses (so easy to decorate!)

One way to make your glassware more unique and cohesive is to simply add stickers to the glasses. They should stay put until you wash them, so you can basically interchange them to match any season.

I absolutely LOVE how these Buzzed Cherry Bombs turned out!

They're super simple, too!

1.) Soak maraschino cherries overnight in SVEDKA Vodka. 

2.) Next, melt white chocolate chips (not the melting wafers) in a double boiler method or in the microwave until smooth.

3.) Taking one cherry at a time, dab onto a paper towel to remove excess juice, and dip into white chocolate, which is deep enough to dip the cherries into completely. A circle should form at the top, leaving a little bit of the red cherry peeking through.

4.) Wipe off excess white chocolate, and then dip into a mound of metallic blue sprinkles. Set onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and let cool about 15 minutes. Refrigerate up to one day ahead of time.
