Summer is my favorite season to entertain because I can easily double the space in my condo for guests by opening patio door. And since we’re all standing around outside, I might as well fire up the grill. Grilling is my favorite (lazy) way to make dinner for dinner parties!

All this week we will be sharing amazing summer grilling recipes, and our readers have a chance to win some amazing prizes from our generous sponsors.  You're not going to want to miss a single day!

#SummerGrilling Week

This week, we're sharing the best grill recipes and celebrating the start of summer with an amazing giveaway, sponsored by BBQGuys, Farmer's Pantry, Hamilton BeachJoy Jolt, The Spice House, and Torani.

Pistachio Moscow Mule Recipe

Every party starts with the hostess offering her guest beverages and I’m kicking off this backyard BBQ with a cocktail recipe featuring our first sponsor Torani.

I first became acquainted with Torani through my local coffee shop and kept a bottle of Torani syrup  in my work desk drawer to make the free office coffee palatable. (you can check out the different Torani syrup flavors here)

It wasn’t until my husband got a carbonated soda maker that I realized I could use Torani syrups for things other than coffee. Follow Torani @torani on Twitter, @torani Instagram,and ToraniFlavor Facebook to get more ideas how to use Torani syrups at home!
