These Tequila Rosé Spritzers are going to be strong like a tequila drink should be, but it&rsquos going to be smooth enough for all the non-tequila fans to also enjoy also.
Strawberry Watermelon Prosecco Spritzers

HOW TO MAKE THE SPRITZERS
- Pour juice into your ice cube tray, about 2/3 of the way.
- Sprinkle in sliced strawberries or any other berries. You can also add mint.
- Carefully place the filled trays into the freezer and allow to freeze completely.
- Once frozen, and you’re ready to pour yourself a cocktail, fill a glass with two ice cubes and top with Riondo Prosecco. Easy peasy!

Greek Salad in a Jar
This vegetarian salad packs a ton of taste and veggies in a mason jar for a make-ahead lunch option. Start with onions and dressing at the bottom of the jar and pile the veggies and cheese on top.

Grilled Romaine with Corn and Chicken
Who says the grill is just for burgers? Take the party (or at least dinner prep) outside with this grilled romaine salad.
Grilling the romaine brings out the flavor and adding chicken provides plenty of protein. This isn't your typical garden salad either—it's guaranteed to leave you satisfied.

Refreshing Summer Fruit Recipes You Can Totally Get On Board With
What are we looking forward to most about summer? Delicious. Fresh. Ripened. Fruit. Yep! We're talking strawberries, peaches, blueberries and more. But, other than eating them fresh, how else can you use them? We've pulled together some of our all-time favourite summer fruit recipes including Fruit Salad (duh), Peach Crumble and even No Churn Blueberry Ice Cream. So, if you need some summertime inspiration, take a look at what we've got to offer. We're convinced you're going to love them!
These baked peaches are roasted low and slow to bring out all their natural sweetness. That means, even if your peaches aren't perfectly ripe, they'll still be super delicious.
We love ice-cream, and we love it even more when it's super easy to make and requires basically zero effort. So say hello to this banana ice cream, which uses only three ingredients, and tastes SOOO good.
This vegan banana bread is hands down one of our favourite things to make. Mixed with raspberries and topped with a vegan spread frosting, it's seriously tasty.
Barefoot Wine Officially Has Spritzers in a Can, and OMG, Gimme the Red Sangria!
As soon as the sun starts peeking out from behind the clouds, the wheels in our heads immediately start turning to figure out how we're going to make the most of the Summer months ahead. And one of the best parts about warm weather? Everything tends to be way more low-key, especially when it comes to soirées. Enter Barefoot Wine & Bubbly's newest line of spritzers that conveniently come in a dainty can and will become your new go-to Summer drink.
What can wine-lovers expect? The light, refreshing drinks offer a heavenly mix of sweet and fizzy. And say what you want about canned wine, but there are tons of perks to going the aluminum route, especially in the Summer. After all, you're not normally allowed to bring glass anywhere close to a pool — so these eight-ounce containers are the perfect solution.
Now, let's get down to business and discuss the flavors, because there are more than enough to pick from. First, there's a Red Sangria that has notes of nearly every citrus fruit, along with a little pineapple. There's also a Rosé — hello, old friend! — that has peachy undertones, and a Moscato if you really want to go full-on sweet.
Guys and gals who are more into white wine will love the combination of Chenin Blanc and Riesling that come together in the cans of Crisp White, and finally, there's a Summer Red that combines several of your favorites — like Moscato, Zinfandel, and Pinot Noir — into a supersmooth sip. You can snag a four-pack of each flavor at stores nationwide for $8 starting on May 1.
