This week at Fine Dining Lovers we indulged in delicious gourmet recipes that are perfect for any summertime gathering. We cooled off with non-alcoholic drinks and no-bake desserts made with seasonal ingredients like watermelon, grapefruit, tomatoes, mint and basil. Our biggest surprise? Discovering an addictive Thai soy dipping sauce that's great on anything from spring rolls to chicken wings. Here are the new gourmet recipes we're excited to share:
Pink Punch with Grapefruit
This thirst-quenching punch (pictured above) is perfect for a summer party. Mint, honey and tonic add enough sweetness to counter the sharpness of grapefruit.
Are you ready for this jelly? This refreshing summer dessert offers a new twist on watermelon thanks to lemon, apple juice and gelatin.
Non-Alcoholic Tomato Cocktail
If you are looking for a booze-free alternative to a traditional Bloody Mary, give this basil-infused tomato cocktail a try. It packs a punch thanks to chili flakes and makes a lovely addition to brunch.
Thai Soy Dipping Sauce
Scallions, soy, ginger and garlic make this the perfect dipping sauce for spring rolls, wontons or any fried appetizer.
Gluten-Free Creamy Corn Soup
A hollowed out gluten-free bread bowl makes a great vessel for this Brazilian-inspired creamy corn soup.
