Backyard Garden Party BBQ
|Chris at the grill|
Our friend Charles has a great backyard that usually goes unused, so yesterday we teamed up with him to throw a garden party barbecue. We helped him bring home a grill from the Great Glebe Garage Sale so we could cook homemade burgers, sausage and grilled veggies.
It was a great chance to make a watermelon keg (full instructable). We wanted something fun for the folks driving home, so instead of the usual vodka, we mixed fruit punch and sprite with the watermelon juice.

But there was no shortage of alcohol! We brought lots of homemade wine and beer which we served in mason jars.

And I made chocolate strawberry jello shots (full instructable), always a huge hit at parties.
Once it got dark we brought out the projector to screen Jaws.
Movies, especially cheesy old movies, just seem more fun outside.
