What to serve

Keep Food Cool With an Inflatable Cooler. But will it float?

Swimming, floating or just hanging out takes FUEL. Finger foods, snacks, drinks and a barbecue keep guests happy! Remember to have some girly stuff and some guy stuff so everyone is happy. Also respect those who choose not to drink alcohol.

The Finger Food

Sure everyone loves salsa and chips and guac, but mix it up a little!

 

Shrimp and Chorizo Bites

Classic Wedge Salad Sticks

Cucumber Bites

Munchies

Break old habits! Put out different dippers–try wild new crackers, gourmet pita chips or a new variety of corn chips for these!  For veggies add yucca or vibrantly colored carrots, golden beets. Live a little! For the cheese ball, we get it–it is for the guys. But they won’t die from having a few multi-grain or seeded crackers in with the Triskets or Ritz!

 

Bacon Ranch Beer Cheeseball

Mexican Street Corn Dip

Roasted Jalapeno Hummus
