The weather is warmer, the grass is greener, and our backyards are itching for a fun drink bar. I’ve got just what you need for a refreshing pool party or backyard BBQ drink station including fresh fruit, your favorite mixers like 7UP® from Walmart, and the spirit of your choice. Here’s how to celebrate summer with drinks that will cool everyone off!
Set up a drink bar. The easiest way to set up a drink bar is with a four or six-foot folding table and a cute tablecloth. You don’t need to find a fancy display table or bar cart if you don’t already have one. Use what you’ve got! Consider having available a muddler for mint, a cocktail shaker, a strainer if your guests want to get really fancy, and an ice bucket with tongs. You can find everything, including your mixers like 7UP, at Walmart.
Use seasonal and fresh fruit. You can save money when you shop by buying fruit garnishes that are in season. We stocked up on summer fruit like kiwis and blackberries and knew these would make the ultimate drinking pairing with 7UP.
Have fun with garnishes. Show your guests a new way to make their drink pretty.
Slice a lime and create a knot with the rind.
Add lime zest to your cocktail while looking cute too.
Get creative with pairings. The combinations are endless when you have 7UP and 7UP Cherry available plus fruit like oranges, kiwis, blackberries, limes, and lemons. Just what would you create?
Try 7UP with blackberries and kiwis with a splash of vodka for a fruity sparkler.
- 6 oz 7UP
- 2 oz vodka
- Sliced blackberries and kiwis
- Mix 7UP with blackberries and kiwis with a splash of vodka for a fruity sparkler.
Mix 7UP Cherry with oranges and limes for a Citrus Cherry Cocktail with a splash of white rum.
Find your flavor. Pick up 7UP at your local Walmart in the soda aisle. 7UP offers a crisp and clean taste that makes it the perfect cocktail mixer. It’s carbonated so the cocktails you create will have just the right amount of fizz.
What will be your cocktail creation?
