Summer is just around the corner and I’m ready for some outdoor entertaining!
Since we live close by the beach, inviting friends over for food and refreshments after a day long in the sand has got to be one of our favourite weekend rituals during the Summer. Ever since moving slightly further from the city, I much prefer laid back nights at home. But just because we don’t desire partying all night long these days doesn’t mean we don’t want to have a good time, whipping up delicious bbq marinades and concocting a few specialty cocktails for our guests is my idea of a good time!
We’re said to expect an unseasonably hot Summer this year, which means, thirst-quenching, cold bevies are in order! I was recently introduced to Henry’s Hard Soda and think that these adult beverages will definitely hit the spot. Henry’s is new to Canada and are available in orange and grape soda flavours and made from real cane sugar – perfect for summer!
Inspired by this bright coloured and nostalgic orange flavour, I prepared these yummy and playful Henry’s Hard Orange Soda ice-cream floats AND created these simple DIY Pom Pom Coasters just in time for all the fun!
If you’re interested in adding this dessert cocktail to your party list, all you need is to fill your glass with 2-3 scoops of vanilla ice-cream, top with Henry’s Hard Orange Soda (ABV: 4.2%) and they’re ready to be served! These ones were made with the orange flavour but they work great with their grape flavour too, both flavours will remind you of the fun ice cream floats from your youth but now you can have them with an adult twist!
And how cute are these DIY Pom Pom Coasters?! They are honestly the simplest of projects and requires entirely zero crafting skills. If you’ve got a hot glue gun and some crafting rope at home, then my friend you’re all set!
DIY Pom Pom CoastersPrint This
- Canvas Rope
- Hot Glue Gun
- Assorted Pom Pom Trim
- Heat hot glue gun on a lined and safe working surface
- Apply a little bit of hot glue at a time as you create a spiral shape with the rope
- When you reach your desired diameter, cut the rope and secure the edge with hot glue
- Apply your preferred trim around the circumference of the coaster
- Set aside to dry and remove excess glue
Be careful with using a hot glue gun!
I’m thrilled to be partnering with Henry’s Hard Soda (available in orange and grape flavour) over the next few months to share more DIY and summer entertaining ideas with you!
Don’t you think these spiked soda floats and coasters are the perfect match?!
