Boujie BBQ

Can you believe we’re almost halfway through summer already? In some ways it feels like it just started, but if you have kids at home, you may have started your countdown to the first day of school already.

We all know what summer means, its barbeque season! And while we know everyone loves a perfectly grilled steak or the classic burger / hotdog combo, we always like to showcase how to make things just a little tastier and lot more elevated with a few easy additions (mostly just living herbs, wink!).

Queue a boujie barbeque. Yes, we said it, this is a little boujie. Sometimes you just need to feel a little extra, but in a super easy and quick kind of way. So, we have a couple great recipes for you to try and a delicious cocktail to have in hand while you make them. Perfect all summer long!

First things first, you need a refreshing cocktail to sip in the heat! This mint cucumber margarita is the perfect cool summer cocktail that you will want to have in hand standing over the hot grill. Our mint really shines in all things refreshing (AKA – ice cream, infused water, mojitos, etc.) so it’s a wonderful addition to a summertime margarita! Now back to all things BBQ.

These open face fajitas are a little twist on an all-time classic. We love the warm cheesy tortilla topped with the creamy dressing. It takes this dish to a whole new level! Marinating the chicken is going to be crucial to the flavor, the longer the better! Don’t be fooled by the long list of ingredients, this dish comes together really quick. If you need an extra quick option, buy premade pico de gallo and guacamole for your toppings. Warm your tortilla and melt the cheese in a skillet. Put that on your plate or bowl and top with all your fixin’s. The more the merrier and we love extra sauce!

If you are looking for something a little different and super fun, you can try this grilled caprese pizza recipe. So delicious, everyone will love it! You can also make basil & nectarine pizza or this goat cheese, cherry, and arugula flatbread. Both are topped with summer fruit favorites and the perfect way to get all the juicy goodness from some of our favorite summertime treats!

We hope you are enjoying every minute of this warm weather. Wherever you are, seasons come and go, and we hope you’re able to enjoy the beauty of this one. Happy Summer! Cheers!
