No need to bring a boring old picnic side dish to your 4th of July festivities. We’ve laid out an entire menu for your Independence Day celebration from delicious appetizers, to cool summer desserts and refreshing cocktails. Best of all, we were careful to choose recipes that come together quickly, so you can get out of the kitchen and back to celebrating this special day with a plate of amazing food in hand.
This recipe delivers some next-level brunch magic. We start with traditional French toast; stuff it with a creamy and sweet mascarpone raspberry filling; only to top it all off with a creamy sweet-and-tart balsamic glaze.
On the Grill
Store bought flatbread is the base to summer’s favorite flavors: juicy grilled peaches and a spunky pesto that make a super fast appetizer or main meal.
We like to spice up grilling season with bold-flavored Hot & Spicy Pesto. Use it as a marinade for your shrimp and then add some to mayonnaise and lime juice for a unique aioli dipping sauce.
Who needs barbecue sauce? We dress these tender pork spareribs with a crazy-good homemade glaze featuring our signature DeLallo Sour Cherry Spread and a splash of Bourbon. You’ve never had ribs like these before!
On the Side
Summertime screams for s’mores. In this recipe, we take this best-loved backyard dessert to the next level with homemade marshmallows, crunchy pistachios and savory flavors from Havarti cheese and balsamic glaze.
This is a lighter twist on an Italian classic. Swap the gin for some prosecco for the perfect backyard barbecue cocktail.
Nothing says summer like a refreshing, orange-flavored aperol spritz. With Aperol, soda and champagne, this cocktail is perfect for toasting with good friends and family. Saluti!
