Great Ideas for Your Next Summer Barbecue

Summer at the Jersey Shore has officially arrived. The grills are hot and the waters cool. Here are some great ideas about what to drink and eat this Summer. Enjoy!

Big Bold Zinfandels made for BBQ
There is nothing quite like a big, bold Zinfandel (red of course) to go with your Summer BBQ. Juicy, jammy dry red wines like these go perfectly with pulled pork, spare ribs and burgers.

Try some of our staff favorites:

Monster Malbec, perfect with a big Steak
A big steak right off the grill and glass of Malbec is the perfect way to end a hot summer evening. The rich spicy, flavor of the Malbec paired up with the meatiness of the steak makes a perfect pairing.

Wonderful Whites Wines
The hot weather can make you sweat in no time, but a simple solution is a nice cold glass of white wine. There is nothing more delicious than a crisp, refreshing glass of white wine, but why stick to Pinot Grigio when there are so many different white grape varietals out there? Try some of our favorite white wines that are off the beaten path.

Craft Beers to Cool Off With
Stuck in front of the grill all day? Nothing beats a cold brewski to keep you cool. Don't pick up the same old boring mass produced beer, drink something unique and delicious. We are all big craft beer geeks here and we drink these all Summer long.

5 Foods for a Fun-Lovin' Summer
1. The Market sandwiches:Swing by on your way to the beach and pick up a sandwich to go from the Market! Try the Prosciutto Mozzarella with homemade basil pesto and vine ripened tomato or the Fig and Brie with caramelized onions and arugula. The Market also has salads, fruit salads, and cold drinks available for take away.

2. Epic Pickles: Small batch company out of York, PA using all natural ingredients pickling kosher dills, carrots, string beans, asparagus, and okra! We love a handful of string beans in our Bloody Mary, New Orleans style.

3. Eat This Bacon Marmalade - Sweet, savory, and LOADED with bacon, this all natural marmalade from Pennsylvania can be used as a marinade or dressing for grilled chicken or meat and it's fantastic atop a grilled pork chop!

4. Bone Suckin BBQ Sauce - It wouldn't be summer without grilling and this BBQ sauce is legit! Get it in regular or thicker style.

5. Hanks Hot Sauce - Crank up the flavor on anything from eggs to steak with this local hot sauce from Sea Isle City!
