Let’s Celebrate: A Holiday Origins Podcast

Jul 2 2023 • 29 mins

In this episode your host Rusty Brown will be celebrating the Fourth of July or the United States of America's Independence Day and contemplating the meaning of freedom and equality of all men (and women).


The CeLibation for this Episode is a Tropical Summer Sangria

For this CeLibation you need:

Bottle of white wine

½ c. Rum of choice

1 cup chopped pineapple

2 limes

1 orange

½ cup Other fruit of choice


To make this into a mocktail CeLibation just replace the wine and rum with a sparkling grape juice or a lemon-lime soda. To make this a specifically Fourth of July Sangria, you can add red, white, and blue fruits like strawberries, blueberries, and red apple slices.
