Forget the forks this Fourth of July and celebrate summer with my favorite finger-friendly foods! I’m big on snacking, and when it comes to a backyard barbecue or picnic in the park, I love to entertain by offering an assortment of tastes. Something sweet, something savory and definitely something with a touch of spice. A variety of flavors and textures keeps palates intrigued and lets guests float back and forth from the sweet to the savory, and in my case, back to the sweet again.
Check out my picks below for the ultimate Fourth of July bash, including a signature cocktail for any size crowd. Happy Fourth and let the cooking begin!
