Lifestyle / Food

Warm weather, sunshine and a lot of food make every summer picnic with friends and family enjoyable. Skip basic foods like sandwiches and fruit for a tastier, more indulgent menu. Pack these food and drink items with a blanket and sunscreen for your next outdoor meal.

 

Social Hour Cocktails

 

Sip on something small ,but strong with Social Hour Cocktails. Gin and tonic, whiskey mule and Pacific spritz make up the three flavors the company currently has for purchase. Each drink ranges in alcohol per volume but does not fail to pack a punch of flavor within a tiny can. Social Hour Cocktails were founded by two legendary bartenders, Julie Reiner and Tom Macy, and only use premium ingredients sourced from New York. You won’t regret pairing these drinks with your picnic foods.

Melly’s Meatball Mix

 

Instead of bringing the typical food for a day in the park, pack homemade meatballs with a special mix of spices from Melly’s Meatball Mix. A definite crowd pleaser, this packet of Italian herbs and spices make for a melt-in-your-mouth, easy recipe. Catering to those with food sensitivities, the mixes come in gluten-free options as well as regular.

Good and Tasty Bakes

 

A picnic is never complete without a delicious dessert. Good and Tasty Bakes offers cheesecakes made with natural ingredients from farms in the western United States and without artificial flavors, corn syrup or hydrogenated oils. Good and Tasty prides itself in being certified through the Gluten-Free Certification Organization, so those with intolerance or celiac disease can have their cake and eat it, too.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
