Pack the Perfect Picnic Basket this Summer Picnics are a great way to enjoy summer. Grab a picnic basket or reusable bag and enjoy a meal with friends and family. Here are a few of our favorite suggestions on how to pack the perfect picnic basket. For two in the park • Three items are key for a successful romantic picnic: gourmet snacks, chocolate and a sparkling beverage • Gourmet snacks–crackers with spreads or prosciutto wrapped melon are good options, looking for something more try a variety of cheeses and olives • Make sure you have something sweet—an assortment of truffles are easy to pack and can be enjoyed in a bite; tie a bow around the box and make a flourish of opening this present for your partner • Pick a beverage with bubbles—sparkling juices, like IZZE Sparkling Clementine and Sparkling Pomegranate, are simple refreshing alternatives to alcoholic choices For the family outing • Kids love shapes. They also like to help, so make this picnic interactive • Let everyone pick their favorite fruit, then let them pick their shape—carrots can be cut into toothpicks or apples into crescent moons • Skip the sandwiches and do cubes of various cheeses and meats • Give everyone a container for their fruit shapes and a few cubes of cheese and meat, let them put together their meal • Have everyone pack their container in the picnic bag with a can of their favorite IZZE Sparkling Juice • Toss in some napkins and head out the door to your favorite picnic spot For something new • On a rainy day, bring the picnic indoors • Grab a blanket, we recommend something bright to create a “sunny” spot • Make something warm like a grilled cheese sandwich with a side of tomato soup or marinara sauce for dipping • Put your favorite IZZE Sparkling Juice on ice and start sharing stories about your favorite things to do on a sunny day • Other activity ideas – read a book or read out loud to the family • It’s a great day-brightener!
