While Memorial Day—the official kickoff to summer—is still weeks away, this pleasant springtime weather is more than enough reason for us to fire up the grill this weekend.
Instead of burgers and brats, add these inventive recipes into your cookout rotation. Perfect your Argentinian asado, tap the red-hot Korean barbecue craze and even boost your deliciously charred fare with booze-spiked sauces. Grilled corn? Boring. Grilled artichoke is more our speed, especially when accompanying juice salmon. As always, we’ve got the pours that’ll keep you hydrated while slaving over that gorgeous open flame. Time to get your grill on!
