Cold drinks, hot sun, and best friends….is there a better combination this July 4th?

So get your sparklers ready and throw on your favorite American flag bikini, because we’re about to make some fireworks go off.

Tips from our founder Jennifer Gilbert as featured in People Magazine:

Sweet Touch

“I took mini cupcakes and assembled into this flag” says Gilbert. “They’re the perfect dessert to serve without plates.”

Let It Snow

“I pour Midori (melon liqueur) on top of old-school snow cones,” she says. “You can nibble and drink them.”
