On Labor Day, say good-bye to summer with a blowout barbecue fit for a crowd.
Summer’s last holiday is the perfect time gather your friends and family and celebrate with the season’s best grilling recipes, refreshing drinks, easy appetizers, and no-bake desserts—the perfect menu for a Labor Day party. Start with appetizer favorites like hush puppies and barbecue nachos. Fire up the grill for a Labor Day feast for the senses: Amp up your burgers with a complete topping station, try sweet, spicy, and buttery grilled corn recipes, and impress your guests by throwing some clams on the grill, too.
Labor Day cocktails like Blackberry Pisco Sours and Marionberry Mojitos—in shades of red, white, and blue, of course—will cool off the crowd. Frozen pies, like deep-dish strawberry ice cream pie or key lime ice cream pie, are the perfect dessert for an end-of-summer soiree. Keep the decorations simple—it is your day off, after all—and the menu fresh and you’ll be on your way to the best Labor Day party ever.
