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.

Jackson’s Bar & Oven Review

There’s an aspirational rustic chic/farm-to-table restaurant genre often associated with Northern California’s wine country. When you drive down the main street of Napa, Sonoma or any of the other towns, it appears there are as many of them as there are vineyards. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this genre, as the quality of the food is consistent and ambitious chefs earnestly endeavor to elevate home-style dishes to a higher standard.
