How was everyone’s 4th of July weekend? From the increased number of searches and traffic that came to the site for BBQ pork on a stick, I am assuming you guys fired up the grill as we did.

G had a blast barbecuing and turned out quite a backyard feast for us. The resident grill master made carne asada, bacon-wrapped hot dogs, and burger sliders among other things. I, on the other hand, took care of the potato salad, peanut coleslaw and a variety of summer drinks to beat the heat.

The watermelon coolers and cucumber agua frescas I prepared were a hit with G’s family while I kept myself delicious hydrated with this ice-cold buko pandan drink. Creamy and chock-full of young coconut strips and pandan-flavored gelatin cubes, this tropical beverage is perfect for the dog days of summer. Enjoy!
