As the Fourth of July approaches, we’re all set to celebrate the spirit of independence with a sizzling BBQ menu that’s as American as it gets with a fusion of flavors both current and classic. We’ve curated a special menu that’s sure to make your backyard the hottest spot in the neighborhood. So, fire up your grills, gather your friends and family, and let’s get cooking! Don’t forget to put on a great BBQ party playlist.
Appetizer: Firecracker Shrimp with Lime
Start your Independence Day celebration with a bang with our Firecracker Shrimp with Lime. These succulent shrimps are marinated in a spicy, tangy sauce that’s as fiery as a Fourth of July firework. The lime adds a refreshing zing that balances out the heat, making these shrimp the perfect appetizer to kick off your BBQ feast. Bite-sized and served on an English cucumber and a small bed of guacamole, they pop into your mouth in one bite. You will definitely have guests coming back for more.
Main Course: Okie Onion Burgers
For the main event, we’re bringing you a classic American favorite with a BBQHawks twist – the Okie Onion Burger. This isn’t your average burger; it’s a juicy, flavorful patty that’s been infused with caramelized onions, giving it a sweet and savory flavor that’s truly irresistible. Served on a toasted bun with your choice of toppings, this burger is sure to be a hit with both kids and adults alike.
To accompany your Okie Onion Burgers, we’re serving up Grilled Street Corn with Chimayo Butter. This isn’t your average corn on the cob; it’s got a slight char, grilled to perfection and slathered with a slightly spicy, smoky Chimayo butter that’s bursting with flavor. The heat level is not as intense as some other chili peppers, which allows its complex flavor to shine through. The combination of the sweet corn and the spicy butter is a match made in BBQ heaven. If you haven’t played with Chimayo seasoning from northern New Mexico before, now is the perfect time!
Dessert: Summer Pound Cake with Berries
To wrap up your meal, we’re serving a Summer Pound Cake with Berries. Despite its name, this pound cake is anything but heavy. It’s light, airy, and subtly sweet, making it the perfect canvas for a topping of fresh, juicy berries. The combination of the tender cake with the tartness of the berries creates a refreshing dessert that’s the perfect end to your Fourth of July feast.
Cocktail: Watermelon Jalapeno Margaritas
To wash it all down, we’re shaking up some Watermelon Jalapeno Margaritas. These cocktails are a perfect balance of sweet, spicy, and tart. The watermelon provides a sweet and refreshing base, the jalapeno gives it a spicy kick, and the lime rounds it all out with a tart zing. It’s the perfect drink to sip on as you enjoy your Fourth of July BBQ. Remember to drink responsibly and never drink and drive. Take a free Uber instead!
We hope this menu inspires you to create a memorable Fourth of July BBQ that’s full of flavor and festivity. Remember, the key to a great BBQ is to take your time, enjoy the smoke, and share the experience with loved ones.
We wish you a happy and delicious Independence Day!
