Siri's Beer-Soaked Hot Dogs

When entertaining, I'm a big fan of setting up topping bars so that guests can help themselves. In the summer, nothing is more fun or festive than a hot dog bar — except maybe grilling those toppings in foil, making clean-up a breeze!

Siri's Grilled S'mores Popcorn

Making popcorn outside over the grill is so much fun! Adding traditional s'mores ingredients like marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers to this delicious snack takes it to a new level and is the perfect addition to an outdoor barbecue.

Carson's Red, White and Bourbon

This cocktail is perfect for any summer celebration because it's bright, refreshing and just a bit boozy. It tastes even better under a sky filled with sparkling fireworks!
