Get the kids in Control for Back to School

It all started with a car full of middle school boys,
trying to calculate how many days left of summer...

Well, I think what counts is that
there are 24 more days until they will need these 
video game controller calculators!

Pineapples & Partying Organically with VitaFrute Cocktails

I created my Pineapple Colada Sparkler Cocktails and DIY Pineapple Straw as part of a sponsored post for VitaFrute by VEEV.  All opinions are entirely my own and I throughly enjoyed to Party Organically.

For me, the ultimate Summer Party,
is festive, colorful and an event where everyone feels at home.
But, of course, you have to have a signature cocktail.

What screams summer fun more than a 
Pineapple Colada Sparkler?

They are so easy to make with the help of VitaFrute Organic Cocktails,
it allows me to effortlessly "party organically"
(both figuratively and literally)
and be free to mix and mingle with my friends.

It is fabulous on its own but for this drink,
I combined equal parts of the new VitaFrute Coconut Colada
with pineapple juice and topped with sparkling water.

Serve over ice and you are done!

Refreshing, tropical and delicious, the perfect combination of coconut and pineapple.
VitaFrute is made with premium, all-natural, certified organic ingredients,
and the Coconut Colada mix is made with hydrating and nutrient packed coconut water.
It is a cocktail that you can feel good about drinking.
(and being 125 calories per serving is an added bonus!)

Cocktails are always more fun with a straw, 
so making these pineapples was a must.

Using a paper punch I cut glittered yellow ovals, 
punched a tiny hole at the top and added sprigs of rosemary.
Just glue them onto straws and you are ready to start sipping.

I don't want you to think the only reason whipped up these drinks 
was to wear my pineapple shirt…

but, isn't it perfect??

We had all the VitaFrute Cocktails
 chilled and ready for our summer bbq...

With options like
Lemonade, Margarita and Cosmopolitan, 
there is a flavor for every occasion.
Days at the beach, picnics, hostess gifts...
I could go on and on.

VitaFrute is giving away the ultimate summer party
 for you and 30 friends along with other great prizes.
