It’s hard to believe that the Fourth of July holiday is almost here. Are you ready for it? We know you likely don’t want to spend a lot of time prepping for a party, as there is sunshine and warm weather to take advantage of, so follow these simple recipes to have fast and delicious food at your Fourth of the July party—or any summer barbecue!
For parties, you need easy-to-make, large-batch drinks. We recommend asking guests to bring beer or wine to the party but have a custom cocktail on hand to set the mood when they arrive! Sangria is so simple, and this one makes use of so many amazing summer flavors.
These are so easy, you can even have the kids help make them, or have guests make their own for a party activity! Get lots of different sprinkles, and let the festivities begin!
A fun twist on the classic app will kill it at your party! This one is also easy to bring to another friend’s party as a guest. They’re far too easy to pop into your mouth, so the only downside will be if you have to stop yourself from eating them all!
Watermelon is a no-brainer on the Fourth of July, but elevate it by making it a caprese salad! You can use a cookie cutter to make the watermelon star shape and add a balsamic drizzle for the perfect finish.
Pizza is everyone’s favorite, and you can easily make a whole range of sweet, savory, salty and unique combinations for the group. Cooking the pizza on the grill gives it a summery vibe, and so long as you have a variety of toppings, you know that everyone will have a slice they like.
Sure, you should have light, finger food options on July 4th, but you should also have something truly decadent, too! This bread has everything you could ever want in a shareable meal…plus, it goes well with rosé!
The dessert to end all desserts! End your meal on a truly high note by making this, but add strawberries as well as blueberries for a patriotic twist.
