How about we all just play hooky today and celebrate national picnic day together. Grab a basket, or your paper bag lunch and head outside and enjoy the sunshine. What would make it even better is if we did not have to return to work and could enjoy a nice Cruzan® Blueberry Lemonade Cooler while enjoying the sun. The Lemonade Cooler Cocktail brings the best flavors of the picnic classic together for the grownups to enjoy.
Simple and delicious, this easy-to-make cocktail is perfect for a picnic lunch or sunset happy hour.

You know, if you cannot leave work in the middle of the day to enjoy Picnic Day with your favorite lunch and cocktail, you can always celebrate when you get home. One of my most favorite light dinners is basically a picnic on a platter. I grab some smoked fish, grilled steak or baked chicken breasts and pair it with apples and cheese. Lay down a blanket on the living room floor add your Cruzan® Blueberry Lemonade Cooler Cocktail and you have yourself a picnic.
