Blueberry Mint Mojito
8 Blueberries
1 Slice of Lime
4 Mint Leaves
6 Ounces of Txakolina or Vinho Verde Wine (You Can Substitute Pinot Grigio)
Crush the blueberries, lime and mint and then add in the wine. Enjoy over ice!

Mija, Sangria (Closest to Homemade)
Mija Sangria is a fresh and natural bottled sangria made with 100% real fruit juice for a true homemade taste. Crafted without artificial additives or preservatives, it's packed with antioxidants from the juice of popular super fruits including pomegranate, açaí and blood orange. Mija comes in a reusable flip-top bottle, making it the perfect on-the-go beverage.

Red, White and Blue Prosecco
Nothing is more refreshing on a hot day than Prosecco. For a fun 4th of July variation, try these red, white and blue ideas.

Artisanal Premixed Gin & Tonic and Vodka & Tonic
Relax this weekend with these delicious premixed cocktails. Don't work this weekend, drink! Berkshire Distillery makes their own artisanal tonic water and then mixes it with either their Gin or their Vodka to make a super smooth treat. Just serve over ice with a lime!

Good Wine in a Can?
Yes, I know what everyone is thinking, we are crazy to recommend a wine in a can. However, not only is this the first wine to be put in a can, but it is also delicious. The only caveat is that you have to put your pinky in the air when you sip from the can! Absolutely perfect for camping, the beach and the boat!
