If you are one of the many people that love to entertain at home, one of the things you will be used to doing is working out what to serve in terms of food and drink. While dinner parties are all about decadent dishes and fine wines, if you plan more of an afternoon or early evening event outside in your garden, you need to look at alternatives.

In terms of food, hosting a party in your garden could involve simple finger buffet food or even a BBQ if the weather is great. Summer BBQs are a great way to come together with family and friends without having to actually go out. However, what about the drinks for your BBQ event? While drinks such as soda, wine, and beer are always firm favorites, there is nothing to say you cannot push the boat out and serve up something a little more exotic such as summer cocktails.

Delight your guests with your cocktail selection

Whether you decide to serve cocktails simply to greet guests as they arrive at your summer BBQ or whether you want to serve them throughout the afternoon or evening, you will undoubtedly impress many people with your ambition. You should never be nervous about trying new things when it comes to cocktails, as the guests will no doubt love sampling them. For instance, you can create incredible summer cocktails by adding grapefruit infused vodka, which is ideal for those balmy summer evenings when you want something cool and refreshing. Of course, you need to ensure you don’t make life difficult for yourself, so when you are choosing cocktail recipes make sure you opt for ones that have plenty of color and flavor but do not involve huge amounts of work.

In addition to this, make sure you don’t forget your guests with special requirements. When it comes to your BBQ food, you need to make sure you take into consideration guests such as vegetarians or vegans otherwise they will be left with empty plates. When it comes to drinks, you need to remember those that cannot drink or prefer not to. Just because some people don’t drink, it doesn’t mean you can’t whip up a delicious cocktail for them. There are some excellent virgin cocktail that contain no alcohol but are still packed with flavor and color. So, when you are doing your research, make sure you add some of these alcohol free cocktails to your list.

To add the perfect finishing touch and really impress your guests, you need to ensure that your summer cocktails are well presented. Think about this when you are purchasing glasses to serve up your cocktails and make sure you purchase decorations that can go into the cocktail glasses to add a special sparkle. In addition, have some frozen fruits on hand, as these are great for garnishing, adding color, and adding flavor to a wide range of delicious cocktails.

There are only a handful of existing black-owned potato chip brands in the world, and one of them has found a home throughout the metro Atlanta-based Wayfield Foods store chain on March 17, 2018.

Known as Symphony Chips, this black-owned potato chip brand is led by Dondre Anderson and his teenage daughters, Amina (15) and Amari (14).  In celebration of their Wayfield Foods debut, the father-daughter team provided Symphony Chips samples to customers at the Wayfield Foods store location at 3050 Martin Luther King Jr Drive. Customer feedback received was overwhelmingly positive.

“They’re good! Well seasoned. A very good chip!” states a customer at Symphony Chips’ debut at Wayfield Foods.

Since gaining coverage from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution last Fall, Anderson has been busy with expanding the Symphony Chips business from the internet and onto retail shelves, and all efforts are finally paying off thanks to the enormous support from Wayfield’s Board Member, Moses White. White, who facilitated the partnership between Wayfield Foods and Symphony Chips, showed his support by stopping by the Andersons’ display with his daughter Racquel White, CEO of Spherol.

“It’s motivating to have gained such a huge amount of support from not just Wayfield and their customers, but the community as a whole,” says Dondre Anderson. “There is a lack of diversity in the mainstream food industry and my daughters and I wish to increase the presence of black-business in the sector, even if only by a little. Our inclusion, we hope, will encourage others in the community to pursue commercial success, regardless of the lack of representation currently present.”

“I’m very proud to have this opportunity to introduce Symphony Chips to Wayfield Foods. Symphony Chips offers a gluten-free alternative with a gourmet taste. And supporting a minority, small business in our community where the owner Dondre Anderson includes his daughters Amina and Amari is divine order,” said Wayfield Foods Board Member Moses White. “Wayfield loves to support businesses from our community and encourages all of our customers to help make Symphony Chips a grand success.”

The idea for Symphony Chips began as a way to promote the Anderson Family’s primary business, All A’s Spices seasonings. As a base for potential buyers to sample the seasoning, homemade chips were used and were so well received that the family decided to establish a whole new product – Symphony Chips. Now Anderson is eager to increase the reach of these gluten-free, all-natural, low-sodium chips to low-income, health-conscious consumers as well as mainstream consumers across the country.

“I never expected that a little cooking in the kitchen with my daughters would turn into something much more than anticipated,” says Anderson. “Becoming one of the few black-owned potato chip businesses in the world is a grand honor, and I’m excited to have introduced my daughters to this level of entrepreneurship while during their youth.”

“Working a business with my dad and sister is really exciting,” says Amina, age 15. “It’s really cool to have gained such professional experience at this age, and I’m really excited about what the future holds for us. I bet it would look good on my resume!”
