Expert Tips for Making 4th of July Recipes

  • Berry Substitutions: Don’t have strawberries? Don’t hesitate to use raspberries or cherries. Run out of blueberries? Try using blackberries or huckleberries
  • Alcohol Substitutions: Making drinks for a crowd above 21? Non-alcoholic drinks containing soda can instead have the sparkling alcoholic beverage of your choice.
  • Don’t have a grill?: Your oven’s broiler actually makes for a fine grill by using intense direct heat similar to a grill.
