It’s been called many things: Beer Butt Chicken, Drunken Chicken, Chicken on a Throne, even Dancing Chicken. No matter what you call it, BBQ Beer Can Chicken is delicious and succulent and requires very little effort. Granted, it looks a little funny sitting upright on your grill, but a little whimsy with dinner never hurts. This chicken starts with a beautiful dry rub that achieves the optimum balance of spice with just a hint of sweet. And in the last few minutes of cooking, it gets slathered with tangy bbq sauce. Beer Can Chicken is perfect for warm summer evenings, and I’m going to teach you how to do it on the grill and in the oven.
Our cocktail toast will be made with a refreshing and seasonal Triple Berry Infused Lemonade. I’ll show you how to infuse your own vodka with any flavor you fancy. So much better than the artificially flavored stuff!
Speaking of seasonal, tomatoes are at their peak this time of year and what could be better than using them in a Tomato Salad with Watermelon, Ricotta & Raspberries drizzled with a tarragon and basil spiked vinaigrette? The answer: nothing.
Oh, and did I mention that we’re going to make our own Homemade Ricotta? You’ll be amazed at how quick and simple it is and how much better it tastes than store-bought.
And last, but not least – a retro dessert that carries fond summer memories for me: an old-fashioned glazed Strawberry Pie. Big, juicy strawberries piled high in a golden, flaky crust and shellacked with a sweet, glossy glaze and topped with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.
Frankly, I think we got summer covered.
