Confession: ever since I bought these delicious, IZZE sparkling juices, I’ve had to restock them about every other day per the husband’s request. I literally can not keep up with the demand!
Summer is the sweetest time of the year. It is also the only time of the year that draws me to bright colors and lots of fruit. I mean, who doesn’t find fruit refreshing in the summer? We’re expecting family later this month and I was brainstorming up some hostess plans while walking through the arts and crafts store. I saw those adorable flamingo straws, witty cocktail napkins, and Palm Beach themed playing cards and, an idea was born!
Brian’s sisters have always been interested in learning how to play poker, and what better way to learn poker than surrounding yourself with all things pink? At least that’s how I think, anyway. Brian plays poker on the weekends and often asks me to go with him, but I don’t know the first thing about it. I picked up a set of green palm tree cards and pink flamingo cards. Now I can’t wait to start learning while hosting a #FriendsdayNight, anytime a group of friends and IZZE are involved!
Made with 70 percent fruit juice and a splash of sparkling water, IZZE Sparkling Juice offers bright-hearted, better-for-you refreshment. IZZE Sparkling Juice is available in eight fruit forward flavors: Clementine, Grapefruit, Apple, Pomegranate, Blackberry, Cherry Lime, Blueberry and Peach. We’ve tried both the Blackberry and Clementine (Brian’s favorite). I chose to showcase Blackberry for this blackberry mojito, but we’ve also used Clementine to make “orange” crushes (Brian’s favorite drink since we discovered it at the beach). Really, I can also imagine a spectacular blueberry + blackberry sangria. So, grab a bottle—and your friends—for a #FriendsdayNight!
