Check Out These 5 Must-Have Recipes for Your Next Pool Party

Posted by Annette Bellisari on

If you have a pool, your house is probably where friends and family like to gather in warm weather, so with the end of summer approaching far too quickly, it’s time to squeeze in some fun by the pool before it’s too late! You probably already know how you like to entertain poolside, but in these times of Covid-19, you might need to rethink your normal pool party menu or at least change how you serve food. Here are 5 recipes you need to add to your backyard party menu:

  1. Frose Wine Slushy -- Did you know each of our spreads has a wine pairing on the label? A perfect way to get a pool party started is to serve Rose Wine slushies! Cold, delicious, and boozy, this fun frozen drink will hit the spot in the summer heat.

  2. Summer BBQ Corn Salad -- Nothing says summer quite like fresh corn! This bright dish is full of fresh, crisp summer veggies and will bring a delicious element to any meal. For serving during the pandemic, put in individual cups so guests don’t have to use the same serving utensil. As a salad or served with tortilla chips as a salsa, this side is always a big hit.    

  3. Bellisari's Fish Provençal Foil Packets -- Another great idea for keeping your meal Covid friendly is to grill and serve individual foil packets. These easy fish packets are the perfect main dish for any meal. 

  4. Blue Cheese, Honey & Shallot Corn Bread Muffins -- In my family, every meal needs some sort of bread. That’s where these easy muffins come in! The sweetness of whole kernel corn balanced by the tang of blue cheese in bread form = heaven. (These days, nobody wants to eat something other party goers may have touched, so the hosts could place a few of these on each plate with the fish packets, telling guests there are more available upon request.)  *Make these in mini muffin tins for the perfect bite-sized serving.

  5. Auntie B’s Peach Cobbler -- No party is complete without something sweet! In the summer, peaches are at their peak, so a cobbler full of the delicious ripe fruit is just perfect for a celebration of the season. The addition of our Blistered Jalapeno & Fig Spread, brings an unexpected but welcome twist to this classic American dessert. (To serve this in a CoronaVirus-friendly way, simply put individual servings on small plates or in bowls ahead of time.)

Now’s the time! Invite friends and family over for slushy drinks, and delicious grilled dishes to enjoy by the pool. With the addition of some great music, you'll have all you need to really make a splash with this summer gathering.
