We’re celebrating with some bubbly themed 4th of July treats perfect for a crowd! You know how much we love to celebrate any occasion, so we couldn’t let the 4th of July go without sharing 2 new delicious bubbly beverages and, of course, a bubbly sweet treat as well.
4th of July Treats
Last year, we shared two 4th of July themed bubbly cocktails, a delicious bubbly cheesy appetizer and a bubbly dessert dip that was on repeat any time we needed an easy dessert.
This year, we decided to create the perfect (and easy) 4th of July Treats for a crowd. So, we created a mocktail and cocktail that can both be made in a pitcher and these delicious bubbly themed Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizzas.
Bubbly Sweet Treat
The base for this fruit pizza is Jenny Cookies sugar cookie recipe. I am a huge fan and her recipe makes the most delicious sugar cookies. Yes, of course, we bubbly-ized them but you certainly don’t have to.
Now for the frosting and the fruit, you better believe we bubbly-ized that! And it’s absolutely delicious!
Bubbly Fruit Pizza
- Make any type of sugar cookie you love. We made the Jenny Cookies recipe and simply used a champagne coupe as our cookie cutter.
- Gather your favorite Red and Blue fruit…we used blueberries and strawberries. Place them in a bowl and pour enough Almond Sparkling Wine to cover them. Cover and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (or as long as overnight).
- 8 oz Whipped Cream Cheese
- 3/4 c Powdered Sugar
- 1 T Almond Bubbly
Combine all ingredients and mix well. A hand mixer works great, but don’t worry if you don’t have one handy, you’re just going to get a great arm workout! We did put this back into the refrigerator for about 20 minutes, but that step is completely optional.
- Spread icing on each cookie.
- Top with fruit of your choice. Be sure to drain the fruit really well before topping the cookies with it.
These cookies pair so well with the Almond Sparkling wine you used in the icing and the fruit! And if you’re looking to complement the blueberry, well you’re in luck because these bubbly beverages are delicious as well. Seriously the easiest and most delicious 4th of July treats that we know everyone will love!
Bubbly 4th of July Beverages
You know how much we LOVE creating bubbly beverages and these are two delicious recipes great for any summer day, not just to make as some 4th of July treats. The key ingredient in these two recipes is the Root 23 Blueberry Mint Simple Syrup.
Root 23 Simple Syrups
When I discovered Root 23 Simple Syrups I knew I needed to try them and they truly did not disappoint. We make all of these cocktail and mocktail recipes and the thought of adding on to the recipe with having to make a simple syrup first was too much.
And I wasn’t the only one who thought so. Many of you would message me about the frustration of having to add this step or that you didn’t realize it had to be made ahead of time and ran out of time. So truly, Root 23 Simple Syrups to the rescue.
This Blueberry Mint Simple Syrup really adds the perfect amount of summer in your glass with just the right amount of sweetness. You truly can’t go wrong with either of these recipes.
Bubbly Blueberry Mint Sangria
- 2 cups Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1/2 cup Fresh Mint leaves
- 2 oz Brandy
- 2 oz Root 23 Blueberry Mint Simple Syrup
- 1 bottle Dry White Wine
- Gently smack your mint leaves and set them aside.
- In a pitcher, add blueberries, mint leaves, brandy, Root 23 Simple Syrup and white wine.
- Stir and refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours or as long as overnight.
- In each glass, add some fruit and mint leaves, pour sangria and top with bubbly.
Bubbly Blueberry Mint Mocktail
By the glass:
- 1/4 c Blueberries
- 10 Mint Leaves
- 4 oz Lemonade
- 1 T Root 23 Blueberry Mint Simple Syrup
- 2 oz Sour Blueberry Soda
- (About 2 oz) Polar Blueberry Lemonade Seltzer Water
- In a cocktail shaker, combine blueberries, mint leaves, lemonade and simple syrup. Muddle well.
- Strain into your favorite glass.
- Add soda and top with seltzer water. Stir gently.
- Top with blueberries, a mint leaf or a lemon slice.
We found the Sour Blueberry soda at our local Pete’s Fresh Market and it is absolutely delicious. It definitely adds some dimension to this drink, but if you couldn’t find it, you can add a splash more of the seltzer water or even a splash of lemon juice.
By the pitcher
- 1 c Blueberries
- 1/2 c Mint Leaves
- 3 c Lemonade
- 2 oz Root 23 Blueberry Mint Simple Syrup
- 1 can Sour Blueberry Soda
- 8-12 oz Polar Blueberry Lemonade Selter Water
- Gently slap each mint leaf and put it to the side.
- In a pitcher combine blueberries, mint leaves, lemonade and simple syrup. Stir well and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
- Add soda and seltzer water. Stir gently.
- Pour into glasses. Top with blueberries, a mint leaf or a lemon slice.
MOCKTAIL TIP: Pour some of the mocktail into an ice cube container and top with a mint leaf. Freeze and use as the ice cubes so your drink isn’t watered down.
Honestly, when I made this mocktail I instantly thought about topping it with sparkling wine because it’s that good. So you can easily take this mocktail and turn it into a bubbly cocktail by doing just that. And I’m not going to lie, I think 1 oz of vodka would be delicious too.
If you like your desserts even sweeter, you can use our bubbly-ized buttercream frosting and follow the same steps above.
If you love sangria, you will for sure want to follow us on Instagram because we will be releasing a new bubbly sangria recipe each week in July!
