the Best Summer BBQ
By Shen Mascariñas
We still have a few precious weeks before summer comes to a close. Before ringing in the rainy season, hosting the best summer barbecue party is in order, don’t you think? Never mind the hassle of planning because we gotchu with food and booze. And let’s be honest, that’s pretty much 80% of what you’ve gotta worry about.
So, move on to daydreaming about this—lounging in your swimwear with an ice-cold drink (or even better, ice candy) in hand, having to stand only when it’s time to get food (and fine, socialize).

Being the gracious and accommodating host you are, you’ll want to make a non-alcoholic drink as well. This one’s incredibly refreshing with an interesting flavor profile from the grated ginger. It doesn’t hurt that it’s pretty to look at, too.

One of life’s simple truths: summer and seafood just really jive.
Upgrade your usual bangus with this recipe’s scrumptious stuffing. Seriously, this one’s bursting with flavor (quite literally). In the recipe, the fish is baked, but if you already have a grill going, definitely go for it. Cooking it in the grill will add a smoky flavor that’s sure to satisfy.
