Three Absolute Musts for Hosting the Perfect Spring Barbecue

Spring is the perfect time to bring everyone together-especially for a barbecue. From the items you’ll want on your grill, to the ice-cold drinks that will be sure to cool you down, we’ve got all the tips to make your barbecue one of the very best.

It All Starts with the Grill

You’ll definitely want to throw some hamburger patties and hotdogs on the grill. Have a little fun with these classic barbecue dishes, by making a few different versions of them. Try the California avocado burger, complete with onions and tomatoes, or these cheese stuffed hot dogs, with bacon and jalapeños. And for those looking for a meatless option, serve up these delicious homemade black bean veggie burgers. That way, there are plenty of choices for everyone to enjoy.

Crafting the Perfect Cocktail for Your Barbecue

As we enter frosé season, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to whip up some of this delicious drink yourself. All you need is a blender, rosé, vermouth and berry-infused syrup. Serve up your frosé in our vina champagne flute for a beautiful look. We can guarantee an which Instagram-worthy picture will come out of it. Need another good frozen drink to serve? Try making this no-blender frozen mango margarita, which would look perfect in our bar highball glass.
