Strawberry lemonade

Fresh Additions for Your Summer Menu

Step up your summer menu with these easy, seasonal additions that will keep your guests raising their flags!

The Party Starter
(Watermelon Tequila Cocktail)

This refreshing watermelon cocktail is a pure taste of summer. For a nonalcoholic version, skip the tequila and add a little water to help blend the mixture.

Strawberry Lemonade 

Kids love special drinks! Make frosty pitchers of this beautiful lemonade for them, and as a satisfying mocktail option.

Blackberry Pineapple Mojito 

The fruit in this rum-based drink makes it a terrific choice with tangy-sweet glazed ribs.

Mojito Shrimp 

These sweet, juicy shrimp taste of fragrant mint and lime, their aromas amplified by rum.

Watermelon, Heirloom Tomato, Ricotta Salata, and Corn Salad 

Thirst-quenching and gorgeous, this salad is a star at any poolside restaurant.

Grilled Strawberry Shortcake Kebabs 

Meat isn’t the only thing that belongs on a stick at a summer BBQ. You’ll need 32 bamboo skewers (each 8 in.); there’s no need to soak them before they go on the grill, because they won’t char with such a short cooking time.
