Perfect for a party – or even as a main for dinner
Dips are a natural for entertaining, of course. But sometimes we even have them for dinner.
And why not? They’re quick to make and quite tasty.
Take this White Bean and Tuna Dip, for example. It’s nutritious and comes together in just a few minutes. Add some bread, plus maybe some crudités, and you have a complete meal.
Ready in a jiffy. Gone in a flash.

Cool, colorful refreshment for hot summer days (and nights)
Need a long, tall sipper that’s not too boozy? Just conjure up an Aperol Spritz (aka Spritz Veneziano).
It’s one of the world’s most popular cocktails. And why not? The Aperol Spritz is super refreshing, with a bright, tingly flavor.
It makes an excellent aperitif. And, because it’s low on alcohol, the Aperol Spritz lets you hold off the heat all afternoon long.
Just call it the summer tamer.

Add fresh basil for an extra taste of summer sunshine
Sweet corn is in season around here – and we’re ready for one of summer’s glory foods.
You can eat it right off the cob, of course. Slathered with butter, it’s the ultimate summer comfort food. But it can be a bit messy.
So let’s take those ingredients and combine them into a plated dish. But brown the butter first, for extra flavor. Then add fresh basil for an extra hit of warm-weather goodness.
The result? A dish worthy of a summer dinner party. When we can have those again.

Fresh summer berries. What could be better? Well, maybe a cocktail that salutes their perky flavor.
Like the Bramble. It celebrates blackberries, which grow wild in much of the world — to the delight of berry pickers.
So mix up a Bramble for a hit of summer-suffused refreshment. Without the thorns.
