5 Recipes to Win Your 4th of July Cookout

Show your pride by hosting an epic feast with a menu that is pure Americana. From a patriotic cake to an unexpected watermelon salad that will WOW your guests, these recipes are guaranteed to impress. Here, 5 recipes to win your 4th of July cookout.

Marinated Watermelon Salad with Whipped Feta

This dish from Food & Wine Magazine is not your average watermelon salad. Watermelon is cut into thick batons and then marinated in a punchy ginger-pink peppercorn dressing. The assertive dressing pulls out the water from the watermelon, concentrating its natural flavor. For serving, it&rsquos piled on a bed of silky whipped feta that will have people licking their plates.

Strawberry-Rose Agua Fresca

Agua Fresca is refreshing and a great drink for both kids and adults. This recipe from Bon Appétit Magazine uses sweet peak-season strawberries and a touch of floral rose water. Serve this to the kiddos as-is, then top it off with a little tequila, vodka or golden rum for adults.

Herby Potato Salad

If you have any vegans or mayo-haters in your family, then this herbaceous, healthier potato salad is for them. Half Baked Harvest skips the classic mayo dressing (which we all know starts to look a little weird after sitting out in the hot sun for a few hours) and replaces it with a silky, nutty, cashew-based dressing. The key is to soak cashews for a few minutes in hot water until they become plump and blend-able, then purée them with olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper until completely smooth. The potatoes soak up the dressing, tasting decadent, but not too heavy. For a final finish, the salad is tossed with a generous amount of fresh herbs. This potato salad is a real winner.

Best-Ever Cold Fried Chicken

We all know that fried chicken is sometimes the best cold, right out of the fridge the next day. For this year&rsquos cookout, serve up this best-ever Cold Fried Chicken from Food & Wine Magazine. This version has an extra-crispy crust that holds its crunch even when it&rsquos cold, making it perfect for laying out at a picnic for guests to help themselves as they please.

Flag Cake

How adorable is this All-American Flag Cake from The Food Network? Use juicy summer berries to create your flag design, then let your guests be surprised by the firework-inspired confetti cake hidden inside.

15 Summery Strawberry Cocktail Recipes

When it comes to cocktails, strawberries get short shrift. Lemons and limes are all over bar guides, but where strawberries and booze are concerned, daiquiris take center stage. But daiquiris are really made for sitting on the beach, so here are 15 fresh strawberry cocktails you can drink anywhere.

1. Strawberry Rose Gin Fizz

If you're craving a drink that's elegant with an edge of fun, you can't do much better than a combination of rose water, gin, and strawberries with a little effervescence from soda.

2. Strawberry Pomegranate Mojitos

This refreshing spring cocktail takes the classic mojito as a jumping-off point and adds a sweet fruitiness that makes these mojitos dangerously drinkable.

3. Strawberry Tarragon Smash

A smash is as fun to make as it sounds. So don't delay vent your aggression and make a sophisticated cocktail all at the same time!

4. Strawberry Basil Bourbon Sour

Living life to the fullest means making your own strawberry-infused bourbon. And once you've got your own strawberry-infused bourbon, you'd be a fool not to make strawberry basil bourbon sours &mdash so get on it already!

5. Strawberry Rosé Sangria

When you start experimenting with sangria, you'll never want to stop. Using rosé and fresh strawberries makes this iteration super refreshing on a hot summer day.

6. Roasted Strawberry Basil Agua Fresca

From time to time, human physiology demands that we drink not for the sake of intoxication, but for actual hydration. When hot, thirsty days set in, you'll want to have a cooling, entirely non-alcoholic glass of roasted strawberry agua fresca on hand. (Of course, you can also add a splash of vodka.)

7. Strawberry Basil Mint Cocktails

This Grand Marnier-based strawberry cocktail is a nice melding of sweet, herbaceous, and boozy flavors. Bonus: There's also a virgin version if you're feeling the need to lay off the sauce.

8. Strawberry Beer Lemonade

Some people will tell you it's sacrilege to add strawberries and lemonade to beer. But those people are insufferable beer nerds and they are missing out on delicious drinks and good times. Be the other kind of beer nerd &mdash the fun kind.

9. Strawberry Jam Moonshine Cocktail

Distillers have recently discovered that they can sell un-aged whiskey by calling it white whiskey or moonshine. While these drinks are generally inferior on their own, their lack of complexity makes them a great base for mixed drinks &mdash just make sure you don't overpay! Now that you're in the know, grab some moonshine, break out the strawberries and jam, and make this deliciously down-home cocktail.

10. Strawberry Basil Margarita

A hint of basil makes this sweet and frosty strawberry margarita totally grown-up.

11. Pimm's Cups

This cocktail is to Wimbledon what crazy hats are to the Kentucky Derby. But unlike crazy hats, which you can't necessarily rock whenever you feel like it, the Pimm's Cup is completely delicious no matter when you drink it.

12. Strawberry Mint Tequila Smash

Your mom would probably disagree, but you're not drinking enough tequila. Seriously. Tequila is a more versatile liquor than you might think and it's time to start inventing all kinds of cocktails with it. Start with this amazing minty strawberry tequila smash.

13. Strawberry Kiwi Sangria

Strawberry sangria takes a tropical turn with the addition of tangy kiwis. Make a pitcher and find out why sangria is such a classic summertime sip.

14. Strawberry Rhubarb Shrub Cocktail

There are classic cocktails and there are classic cocktails. The shrub, made from a sweet vinegar-infused syrup, was popular in colonial America and has made a comeback in recent years. Hone your old-timey cred in style with this excellent strawberry rhubarb shrub recipe.

15. Bloodhound Cocktail

You're probably thinking this is some kind of cocktail detectives drink to help them track fugitives, but cocktails like that don't exist. This is just a simple and refreshing summer cocktail that combines strawberries with ingredients that a well-stocked home bar will have in spades.

Our Favorite Epicurious 2019 Labor Day Recipes

Labor Day is about food, fun and family. While you’re taking a much-deserved break from the daily grind of work, there’s nothing better than a great meal or two to punctuate a relaxing Labor Day weekend.

As usual, we’re leaning heavily on the expertise of Epicurious, one of the web’s pre-eminent food and recipe sites, to fill our Labor Day table. The recent release of Epicurious’ article 󈬡 Low-Fuss Labor Day Recipes” provides a great deal of inspiration!

Check out Epicurious’ 2019 Labor Day Recipes!

Even the most avid “foodie” isn’t going to eat 49 meals on Labor Day weekend – even though you may feel as though you did eat that much by Monday night! We’ve read up on all 49 of Epicurious’ Labor Day recipe selections, and narrowed the list down to a few options we think deserve to be on your lunch or dinner table during the long weekend.

Let’s look at 5 of our favorite selections from this year’s Epicurious Labor Day “food playlist” and we’ll tell you why they deserve the attention of your taste buds!

The Best Epicurious 2019 Labor Day Recipes

This double-stack take on classic Labor Day fare is the perfect place to begin our list. Two grilled 3-oz. patties start this fulfilling burger, and a special sauce punctuated with adobo and finely chopped pickles adds a jazzy punch that separates this burger from the standard.

One of the most surprising and appetizing entries on Epicurious’ Labor Day recipe list, this honeydew salad is full of contrast and unexpected flavors. What begins as a cold, fresh melon salad quickly becomes captivating with the heat of serrano pepper, spice of ginger and intriguing flavor of Persian cucumbers. What begins as a monochromatic all-green salad bowl ends up being a flavorful, fulfilling salad that kept us coming back for more.

While this dish is listed as an appetizer, you may find yourself eating the whole thing and turning this delicious eggplant into an entree. The direction to grill the eggplant directly on the dying coals of your grill is audacious and guaranteed a smoky, charred flavor. This recipe’s harissa vinaigrette is one of the simplest we’ve made in awhile, and is quite delicious.

The grilled veggie trend continues with this spicy cauliflower recipe. Basting the cauliflower with spicy butter gives it a unique orange color, and serving it over a tangy miso mayo adds an extra satisfying punch. This is another dish that can serve as an appetizer or a main course. Like the eggplant offering above, it’s a filling enough offering to satisfy any vegetarian guests at your dinner table.

Looking for the perfect drink to cap off your Labor Day meal? This refreshing berry-filled beverage reaches new heights with the unexpected flavors of rose water and agave nectar. Epicurious lists the rose water as optional we’ve tried it both ways and think that it makes all the difference. You can spike this drink and make it a cocktail, but the non-alcoholic version provided is pretty perfect as is.
