The 4th of July and a three day weekend has arrived. Growing up in Chicago watching the fireworks on the lakefront was something I looked forward to every year. This year now that I live in LA, I will be down in the marina, sitting by the ocean with friends enjoying a whole new fireworks experience.
What also goes along with the 4th and a three day weekend? Food, Drinks and lots of it. So here are my favorite drink & dessert picks for the weekend. To find recipe just click on photo. Enjoy.
