If you've been following The Two Bite Club for a while now, you already know that I love entertaining. Party planning is my idea of a fun time, and I enjoy the process of planning and executing the menu for holidays, family birthdays, and just regular old get-togethers with friends.
Just as important as the food I serve when we have people over, is the drinks I serve. I am a total believer that a great cocktail is just as important when you're menu planning as the main course. The right drink can set the mood for the whole menu!
This summer we moved into a new home with a gorgeous pool, jacuzzi, and outdoor kitchen. That means that we have spent the better part of our summer enjoying lots of outside time grilling, sipping cocktails, and laying by the pool. Not a bad way to spend the summer, if you ask me!
That's why, I'm not quite ready to let go of summer just yet! The sun is still nice and hot here in Florida, and there's still plenty of time for barbecues, Labor Day celebrations, and making more summertime memories with family and friends before the cool weather rolls in.
I recently got my hands on a few bottles of Barefoot Refresh® Spritzers, and I have to say, I think it will be perfect for our end-of-summer celebrations. Have you tried it yet? I tried the Crisp White Spritzer and I absolutely loved it!
Barefoot Refresh is a light-bodied, vibrant spritzer that is great over ice and perfect for summertime, also known as Spritzer Season!
- Crisp Red Spritzer: a blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Rose and Pinot Grigio
- Crisp White Spritzer: a blend of Chenin Blanc and Riesling
- Sweet White Spritzer: a blend of Pinot Grigio and Moscato
- Summer Red Spritzer: a blend of Pinot Noir Rosé and Moscato
- Perfectly Pink Spritzer: a blend of Grenache and Moscato
When I plan our summer party menus, I will usually focus on grilling, fresh fruit salads, chips and dips, and other light and easy options that are perfect for a day of relaxation. Relaxing days in hot and sunny Florida also require refreshing beverages, and I think a cool, fizzy glass of Barefoot Refresh on ice fits perfectly with our summer menu planning.
Honestly, I can see grabbing a bottle of Barefoot Refresh for a day at the beach, a picnic in the park, or even when I'm by myself simply lounging next to the pool at home! I love spritzers! I plan on picking up a few bottles the next time I'm at the store to keep on hand for when an occasion presents itself. Best to be prepared, right?!
I'm thinking Labor Day will be my next big get-together and I've come up with a great menu perfect for Spritzer Season featuring Barefoot Refresh. I think you'll love it!
- Homemade Onion Dip with fresh veggies and chips for dipping
- Jalapeno Cream Cheese Burgers
- Grilled Marinated Chicken
- Mom's Traditional Potato Salad

What's on your Labor Day barbecue menu? Whatever you're serving, I'm sure a bottle of Barefoot Refresh will be the perfect accompaniment. Pick up a bottle, enjoy, and let me know what you think!
