Don’t let summer end without making a Sprite bar

A quick look at TikTok's five-year plan reveals that this is a girl's world and everyone else is just living in it. From "tomato girls" to "strawberry girls" to "girls in their 20s", this summer is indeed the summer of girls, and it should be so. But the season is quickly coming to an end, and it's still up in the air whether these trends will continue long after the humidity is gone. For a proper send-off to the summer of girlhood, toast with a homemade Sprite bar filled with your favorite drinks and garnishes. It's basically the "girls' dinner" to end all girls' dinners.

As summer comes to an end, you'll want to take advantage of the crisper weather as much as possible. While you may not need a reason to drink all night long, the Dog Days are the perfect excuse to whip up a fully stocked Sprite bar for your best friend. TikTok's latest craze was initially sparked by user @talia.dianee, who highlighted her spritz bar setup at a cocktail party in August, followed days later by @marinadyanamichettia. Super cute idea and probably realized that anyone can build a spray bar in their kitchen. You don't need to buy a brand new bar cart to host a party - all you need is a sink and you're basically good to go.

To ensure your cocktail function runs smoothly, the first thing you need to do is fill your sink with ice cubes to serve as an ice bucket for your sparkling wine. (@Marinadyanamichetti provided her attendees with Sieur d'Arques Première Bulle Brut, but you can use any brand you like.)

Next, make sure to provide your guests with all the alcoholic beverages they may need. According to user @talia.dianee's follow-up video, drinks like Pellegrino, Aperol, Chardonnay, Prosecco, Gin and Poppi are all good places to start. "I have the ingredients to make two different types of Sprite: Aperol Sprite and Hugo Sprite," the TikToker explained. The more choices, the better.

Then, to give each glass a "gram-wide" makeover, you'll serve up a perfectly arranged fruit platter filled with sliced ​​grapefruit, lime, lemon, orange, and orange peel garnishes. Finally, don’t forget to add some mint leaves and reusable straws to finish it all off.

If you're looking for more inspiration for a boozy party, @talia.dianee also offers tomato burrata salad, chips and dip, grapes and sliced ​​sourdough bread to go with your drinks. “I kept the food super simple because it’s a cocktail party after all,” says the creator.
