Al Fresco Entertaining: The Perfect Barbeque Menu


Robinson's Prime Reserve

We love gathering a few friends in the summer for impromptu get-togethers outside. Set the scene with rustic silver buckets filled with wild flowers, twinkling tea lights on banisters and tables, and platters overflowing with fresh fruit for a little something sweet after the barbeque. For the must-try main course, we turned to the grilling experts at Robinson’s Prime Reserve and the culinary mastermind Samuel Adams Chef David Burke. Fire up the grill for this three-part recipe and serve with ice-cold lemonade and Sam Adams, of course (fresh sliced lemons are a must).
