Tis the season for summer to fly by, lazy days of pool time and unlimited opportunities to grill and get out side. We’re slowing things down this 4th of July weekend – enjoying homemade treats with family and friends and generally attempting to relax as much as possible. That being said, we hope that whatever you’re planning for the 4th of July is fun, safe and memorable! To help make your menus the most memorable they can be, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite recipes – they are sure to make an impact!
Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream: We’ve combined the best of both worlds with strawberries shortcaking through our vanilla bean ice cream. Trust us, it will be a new favorite!
Summer Fruit Tart: This is a show stopper of a tart and comes together quickly! The hardest part is chopping up all of your favorite summer fruits and if you have older children, this is a great one to have them help out with!
Summer Fruit Salsa: This salsa is zesty, but not too much so because of the balancing flavors of vanilla. We love it on fresh, wild caught fish, but it would be wonderful on chicken and even just on chips to snack on all day!
Grilled Fruit: Talk about a memorable experience – grilling up seasonal summer fruit takes the flavors to the next level! Your grill party will feel extra gourmet with some grilled fruit to accompany all of those hot dogs, hamburgers and brats!
Vanilla Vodka Fizz: Mellow and fruity, our take on the slow gin fizz will satisfy the palates of many!
Vanilla Mojito: Classic!
White Vanilla Sangria: A classy and delicious twist on the traditional.
