Strawberry-Rose Agua Fresca. This refreshing beverage makes the most of peak-of-the-season strawberries.

Red White and Blue Sangria (Patriotic Punch).  Made with watermelon, blueberries and white grapes, this patriotic sangria adds the perfect blend of red, white and blue to your 4th of July bash, and is super easy to make.

Shirley Temples. The nostalgic classic never goes out of the style.

Simple Starters:

Corn Salsa. A rainbow of bright flavors and textures that will pair well with any main you’re serving up this holiday. As a bonus, pile it on your burgers!

Firecracker Popcorn. This popcorn is decorated with all the sprinkles and is sure to cause a few fireworks.

The Main Event:

Bistro Sliders. Small in size, but big and vibrant in flavor. These little crowd pleasers are just right for big or small appetites. Vegetarian? Make it a Black Bean Slider!

Hot Dog Bar. Grab your buns and dogs and a whole lot of toppings. Load up your dog with everything you love.  Prefer Brats? Replace the basics with your favorite sausage and get creative!

Vegetarian Muffulettas. Ideal for picnics, a meatless take on the classic New Orleans sandwich, garlic-infused roasted vegetables take the place of the traditional Italian cold cuts.

Celebratory Sides:

Red, White, and Blue Salad. Juicy watermelon, sweet bursts of blueberries and crunchy jicama dressed with a simple honey and lime dressing make this salad a favorite all summer long.

Virtue Cornbread. Slightly sweet and buttery, a classic Southern cornbread from Virtue Restaurant in Chicago. Great for next day Blueberry Cornbread French Toast!

Avocado Potato Salad. Everything we love about traditional potato salad but without the greasy mayo. Instead, this flavorful side uses Greek yogurt to lighten things up.

Bloody-Mary Tomato Salad. Let your favorite heirloom tomatoes shine in this bright this cocktail-inspired salad.

Crispy Farro and Tomato Salad. For a whole new summer grain salad experience, broil farro until it’s crackly and crispy, toss with parsley, parmesan, and lemon zest, then scatter over the ripest, juiciest tomatoes you have.

Sweet Finishes:

Humphry Slocombe ice cream sundae bar exploding with unique toppings! Pick up your favorite flavors or have them delivered to your doorstep and create your own selection of fixings to sprinkle on top.

Red White and Blue Cheesecake. No bake and festive with red white and blue, this is sure to be a centerpiece hit!
