4 Super Simple Summer Party Recipes


As soon as the first hot and sunny day of summer comes, you know we’re rushing to buy our barbecue meats and sauces, bringing out the Pimm’s and mixing up some unusual cocktails. But, you also gotta have some summer go-tos that are as easy as 1-2-3.

These recipes are fun and young, and since they’re versatile they can lighten up the mood at any event. So if you’re throwing a pool party, planning a picnic or even planning a bingo fundraising night, these recipes are a sure (and delicious) bet.

1. Frosty Strawberry Desert

This refreshing summer desert is perfect for pretty much any occasion. The sweet and crumbling desert is made by mixing:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup melted butter

Place the mix on a cookie sheet and bake it for 20 minutes at 350°.  At this point, whisk two egg whites until frothy and beat in 2/3 cups of sugar.  Add 1 (10 ounce) package frozen strawberries, two tablespoons of lemon juice for a bit of sharpness and then fold in 1 cup whipped cream. Then make a sandwich with the crumb mixture and strawberry egg mix, using the mix as the filler. Put in the freezer for an hour and you’re ready to go.

2. Death by Chocolate Milkshake

This recipe is unbelievable simple but effective.  It is a three-ingredient recipe which takes no more than five minutes to put together. Mix together a cup of chocolate ice cream, a quarter cup of chocolate syrup and a half cup of chocolate milk.  It sounds really bad for you, because it is, but it tastes real good.

3. Planter’s Punch

This is one of the most attractive cocktails I have ever seen.  The thought of the orange juice oozing into the grenadine is enough to make you salivate. To make this cocktail for yourself, mix together 3 ounces Myer’s Original Dark Rum, 3 ounces Captain Morgan Silver Spiced Rum, 1.5 ounces Grand Marnier,  6 ounces orange juice, 6 ounces pineapple juice, 1.5 ounces lime juice, 1.5 ounces simple syrup, few dashes bitters, 2 ounce Grenadine and 1 orange wheel.

It may seem quite a few ingredients to make a drink, but take my word for it; it’s more than worth it.

4. Ultimate Ketel One Lemonade

Another favorite from the bingo fundraiser, this one is a lot simpler and easier to make than the last. Simply mix 1.5 ounces Ketel One Citroen Vodka, 2.5 ounces fresh lemonade, garnish, strain and you’re good to go. Don’t forget to garnish with an orange wheel!

These are just a select few of the recipes and drinks which have caught my attention recently.  To help you get into the summer mood, I would strongly recommend trying them out and even trying something new for your next summer event.
