Level Up Your Labor Day Recipes With This Bar Cart Staple

We’ve teamed up with ANGOSTURAÂŽ bitters to send off summer in style—with plenty of bitters-filled beverages and snacks, of course. This centuries-old spirits brand has inspired iconic recipes since 1824, from the Old Fashioned to the Manhattan. When temperatures rise, we all crave cool treats, but the key to enjoying all the sweet summer staples is balance. That’s where bitters come into play. Once considered a medicinal cure-all, ANGOSTURAÂŽ aromatic bitters quickly made their way from the pharmacy to the back bar during the early nineteenth-century. And thankfully, that’s where the bitters have remained for nearly 200 years, helping harmonize our cocktails and spice up ordinary dishes along the way. To celebrate the unofficial end-of-summer, here are a few easy ways to shake up your Labor Day menu with bitters. Read More >> …

This Dairy-Free Italian Cream Soda Is Your Summer Savior

A quick trip to South Dakota provided everything I could want in a Wild Wild West-themed adventure and then some. I took home a rock from Crazy Horse Memorial, roamed with the buffalo at Custer State Park, posed with the presidential statues in Rapid City, hiked the Badlands, and picked George Washington’s nose from afar at Mount Rushmore. But shockingly enough, one of the most impactful (and random) takeaways from my visit was a reinterpretation of Italian cream soda concocted by Katlyn Svendsen, who works with the state’s tourism department, who invited journalists like me to experience everything the Midwest destination has to offer.

45 Best Tomato Recipes & You Can’t Tell Me Otherwise

Tomatoes for summer? Groundbreaking. But Meryl Streep jokes aside, it really is a delicious time to be alive. Growing up, I never thought much of raw tomatoes—I didn’t avoid them, per se, but I never went out of my way to seek them out. I thought it was because I just didn’t like them but really, I just wasn’t eating great tomatoes. Eventually, I learned about heirloom tomatoes (ever heard of ’em?!) and then later in life, traveled to Italy where I ate fresh tomatoes daily during peak season. Now, I’ll practically eat them like an apple (try and stop me!). I put the red (or green or yellow or orange or brown-ish!) fruit to work with these 45 tomato recipes all summer long.

Our 52 Best Zucchini Recipes of All Time

And that’s not to mention tons of hearty mains (pasta or paella, anyone?) and potluck-ready sides.

Our Most Popular Recipes in July

When we turn the calendar to July, the first thing that comes to mind is cold lobster salad rolls (or hot buttered, if you’re from Connecticut), followed by juicy berry pies, grilled corn on the cob, all the ice cream, and refreshing drinks (both boozy and not) for cooling off during the dog days of summer. But the 10 recipes our readers couldn’t get enough of last month ran the gamut of seasonal winners like Green Tomato Crumb Cake from Rachel Rappaport and Dorie Greenspan’s Blueberry-Thyme Yogurt Cake to picnic-ready sandwiches. And now that the little ones are home, two of Erin Jeanne McDowell’s kid-friendly breakfast pastries also topped the list, as well as three easy shrimp recipes. We’ll do everything in our power to hold onto summer as long as possible—fortunately, these 10 recipes make it easy to do just that. Read More >> …

How to Build Your Perfect Paloma

We’ve teamed up with PatrĂłn Tequila for a step-by-step guide to building your perfect paloma—and it all starts with their high-quality, handcrafted tequila. From amber Reposado to crystal-clear Silver, PatrĂłn’s tequilas are the flavorful foundation for a summery sip. The paloma is one of those perfect cocktails. It’s floral but not too sweet, packs a punch but isn’t too strong, and is simple enough to make at home without having an especially robust home cocktail setup. Start with the basic building blocks of a classic paloma—grapefruit, lime, tequila—and use it to find a formula that suits your needs. Prepared to make your own simple syrup and juice fresh fruit? You go! Only have agave syrup and grapefruit soda on hand? That’ll do just as well. Use any type of tequila your heart desires, like a lightly floral reposado or a smooth-drinking silver from our friends at PatrĂłn—when it comes to tequila these folks know their…

5 Breezy Tequila Drinks That Were Made for Summer Fridays

We’ve teamed up with PatrĂłn Tequila to help you spend your Summer Fridays in style. Whip up a cocktail with one of their handcrafted, high-quality tequilas—like their lightly floral Reposado with just a hint of oak—then pair it with a warm-weather snack to start your weekend off right. When the weather is warm and my free time is filled with beach trips and barbecues, the last place I want to be is in the office. That’s why I would imagine Summer Fridays—aka the near-mythical tradition of getting to leave work early on the last day of the week—were invented. While I don’t technically have this luxury right now, I like to embrace the spirit of Summer Fridays by celebrating the weekend’s start in a backyard or on a rooftop with good friends, snacks, and a refreshing cocktail.
