A Very New York Fourth

Since all the real New Yorkers were in the Hamptons/Jersey Shore this weekend, it was just me, my husband, and 30 billion tourists left in the city to hold everything down.

Hoboken, NJ (right across the river from NYC) is the best place to watch the fireworks so husband and I hauled ourselves over there to get the best fireworks show possible.

But first, it was cocktail time:

4th of july cocktailI got this festive cocktail that was essentially crushed ice, syrup, and a splash of tequila (maybe). I switched to prosecco immediately after this was done.

Then we made our way down to the waterfront and the fireworks started!

And basically they kept going until the sky was a giant cloud of smoke and light.

    Amazing how you guys all celebrate the Fourth together. In Belgium we don’t have a day like that, actually – pretty sad. 🙂 Hope you had a great one!
