SOMETHING THAT IS ON PARKER’S PLATE THIS JULY FOURTH THAT MIGHT SURPRISE US
On holidays you should reward yourself, which is why I like to start with dessert. It’s going to be hot, so have your guests pick a variety of flavors and create a Real California ice cream sandwich bar. Look for the Real California Milk seal for the best ice cream made with milk from California’s 14-hundred dairy farm families. Real California dairy products provide endless options for memorable outdoor entertaining. Have your party guests create their own masterpiece with a Real California ice cream sandwich bar. Pick your favorite flavor to serve as a blank canvas. I also found two great recipes for Sriaracha Lime Pesto and Garlic Herb flavored butter…that pair perfectly with corn on the cob. Nothing tastes better than Real California butter, and you can find more amazing recipes at www.realcaliforniamilk.com.

BEVERAGES TO LIVEN UP A PARTY
If you’re a little bored with beer and sodas, try one of my new favorites – Barefoot Refresh Spritzers. They’re great over ice, in a cocktail or chilled straight from the can. Better yet, these single-serve spritzers fit perfectly in a beach bag or cooler and can go places where glass and bottles aren’t always welcome. It’s a light-bodied and refreshingly vibrant option for sunny days by the pool, backyard barbecues or any kickback time with friends and family. You can find them in two delicious varieties Crisp White & Summer Red.
