Welcome to the Labor Day Luau! All this week I’m going to have very fun Hawaiian-inspired recipes here on the blog. You can follow along all week and by Saturday have a perfect lineup for your party. I can safely tell you that every one of these recipes is going to feed a crowd, and you probably already have most of the ingredients.
Every good party has to start off with a fun drink, so we’re kicking this menu off with two choices: Cherry Lemon-Limeade and Frozen Strawberry Limeade (posted previously but fits the theme, and possibly the best drink I’ve ever tasted). They’re both sweet and fruity and fun. Basically everything a good drink should be.
In case you don’t know, I’m also very active on Facebook. Make sure to like the page so you don’t miss any of the fun.
Aloha for now
