17 Red, White, and Blue Foods to Make for the Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is all about red, white, and blue—so you might as well make sure your menu is just as on-theme as your outfit. While the idea of finding a lot of red (let alone blue) recipes may sound daunting, rest assured you have plenty of options. Whole fruit rocket pops, a riff on the childhood classic, make a fun dessert with their strawberry-lime, coconut-banana, and blueberry-mint layers; ricotta and roasted tomato bruschetta with pancetta brings contrasting colors and a sweet-savory profile to the table. Read on for more of our red, white, and blue recommendations.

Outstanding Craft ‘Session’ Beers for Your July Fourth BBQ

Done properly, day drinking should be a marathon—not a sprint. But if you’re cracking a traditional craft beer this July Fourth—many of which touch 7 or 8 percent alcohol-by-volume (ABV)—you’re going to struggle to stay up for the fireworks. That’s because one pint of an 8 percent ABV beer packs more booze than a double bourbon. (If you don’t trust our math, here’s a handy drink calculator.) Session beers are the solution. Packing all the flavor of your favorite craft offerings but with as little as half the alcohol, the “sessionable” beers on this list will buoy your holiday rather than weigh it down. — Markham Heid
