You all know we LOVE to get our grill on in the summer. There's only a few precious month's of grilling and boozing to make the most of before the cold weather sets in. As much as we still love those fall months (can you say 'tailgating heaven'?), we kind of wish we could grill all year round.
So when those warm temps hit, it's all about grilling all the things. We grill our meats, our veggies, our desserts and now, even our cocktails. Grilled pineapple is already one of our fav summer treats, so why not throw it in with some bourbon so you have something delicious to sip on while you're working hard over that hot grill? There's no reason not to, obviously.
These bourbon smash cocktails are packed with grilled pineapple so they are almost like a sangria with all that chunky fruit in there. Of course, instead of wine there's a ton o' bourbon - right up our alley for cocktail hour. Keeping those summer vibes going and working our grills as hard as possible is all we BBQ-loving peeps know how to do, after all. Cheers to the summer!
INSTRUCTIONS: In the bottom of a double old fashioned glass, muddle grilled pineapple with lime juice.
Pour in bourbon and stir. Fill glass with crushed ice and top with soda water. Stir once more to combine. Serve.

A little sweet, a little savory, a little spicy and a whole lotta meat... That's how I sum up this easy peasy chicken wrap! It has all the flavors you want to tickle your taste buds, but it won't take you more than 5 minutes to throw the thing together before you head off to work. In my opinion, this is the best lunch possible. It's full of meat to keep you full all day, but just because it's a little lighter than say, a double-cheeseburger with extra bacon, it doesn't mean that it won't keep ya going strong throughout the rest of your work day.
I seriously LIVE off things like these Spicy Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Wraps in January because I am so busy trying to stick to work resolutions and start the year off with a serious BANG. I need quick, easy and delicious in the middle of my day - because if it takes a long time to make and eat, I'll end up napping under my desk and I'm pretty sure the boss would frown on that whole idea... So get your grab-and-go from your own kitchen instead of hitting that pathetic little sandwich cart, and being disappointed with your lunch yet again. This meaty feast of goodness wrapped up inside this tortilla is all your heart (and tummy) needs!
INSTRUCTIONS: Warm each tortilla in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds each. Spread each tortilla with half of the BBQ sauce. Divide the chicken, pineapple, bacon, and cheese evenly between the two. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Wrap one side over the center and then the other side over the center. Serve.
