Fresh vegetables and fruits are one of our favorite parts of summertime blog posts, which is why one our most used tag lines is: Easy, Tasty, Fresh! As we looked back at past blog posts, we realized some definite patterns in our posts. One pattern that overwhelmingly stood out to us was how many recipes that we had with berries.
Berries are the best — nature’s candy! Berries complement many cocktail and dessert recipes, so this week we are going to feature some of our past posts that included berries, such as, Strawberry Prosecco Cake or Tequila Strawberry Lime Ice Cream Pie, both of which we have made recently at The Blind Pig household. Welcome to our Berry Festival by taking a look back with us. Perhaps this is a good time to try out one of these fabulous recipes that you haven’t tried yet.
Strawberry Prosecco Cake
This dessert requires a little extra effort, but is certainly worth the effort. The sponge cake is drenched in prosecco and frosted with a whipped cream frosting. Delish! It’s the ultimate summer dessert.
Tequila Strawberry Lime Ice Cream Pie
Tequila Strawberry Lime Ice Cream Pie is an easy dessert that will impress family and friends. The salty pretzel crust pairs nicely with the sweetness of the strawberry ice cream and tequila.
Prosecco Summer Dessert
Prosecco Summer Dessert is such an easy summer dessert, you will wonder why you haven’t made it sooner. Made with angel food cake, fresh berries, cool whip and vanilla pudding, it is ready for guests in no time.
The Raspberry Margarita is a great twist on a skinny margarita classic. It is perfect for summertime pool sipping.
Rum and Prosecco combine in this cocktail to give it a light refreshing taste.
Strawberry Aperol Spritz
A twist on a crowd favorite, the Strawberry Aperol Spritz is a delightful fresh summertime cocktail.
Strawberry Basil Margarita
The bright colors in this cocktail help to create a beautiful patriotic beverage for summer holidays. The strawberry and basil flavors are a wonderful combination added to a wonderful skinny margarita base.
Blackberry Kiwi Mocktail
Red berries aren’t the only popular berries during the summer, blackberries make great cocktails too! This mocktail is a huge hit on a hot summer day.
We’ve featured this whiskey based drink with blackberry simple syrup in many posts before. It is a summertime hit with a surprisingly light finish.
Grown Up Berry Lemonade
We couldn’t complete this post without suggesting an easy berry lemonade to fix for your picnics and lake trips. A few simple basic ingredients and you are good to go with some spiked berry lemonade!!
All of these recipes are just the right amount of berry with a bit of summer mixed in. Enjoy them wherever your summer may take you.
