Memorial Day is almost upon us! Gasp! Here are some classic recipes to help you kick off the start to summer with a deliciously satisfied belly.
Ok, on to the fun stuff, yeah? Desserts. Obviously the best part. First and foremost, s’mores. Because duh. Maybe you need a quick dessert. May I suggest a fruit trifle? American flag decoration optional. Popsicles are also a good idea. For a kid friendly version these fudgsicles are truly divine. No seriously.
Persnaps you prefer booze in your desserts, yes? I do. Let’s just go all the way with Beer ice cream. Trust, its delicious. Not your style? Ok, how about ice cream floats? This one uses homemade hot fudge and bourbon. You can dial up the intensity based on your own whim and fancy. At the very end of the line there we have the best mistake I ever made. Also known as rum ice cream. Or perhaps you want to go right to the good stuff, vodka and pink lemonade popsicles. Doesn’t that just scream the start of summer?
Maybe you want to skip the food as a vehicle for your booze and get right to the good stuff. I heard it’s tequila season. Grapefruit margs sound about right.
Oh man, all the things! Go enjoy them! Then sit in the sun and get sunburnt and start complaining about how it’s so hot already and how you wish it were fall. Ahem. Or not.
