Fourth of July at The Castle

Posted by editor on 06/29/16

The Port Chester High School will do their annual firework show this year and when you live at The Castle, you’ll have the best seat in town! Easily viewed from our rooftop terrace, your friends will be impressed with our beautiful grills and comfortable lounge area for your Fourth of July celebration.

Since you’ll most likely be grilling this Independence Day, we put together a few recipes that will make you look like a professional chef when you host at your Bozzuto home.

  • Grilled ciabatta bread with zucchini, ricotta and basil is a perfect appetizer to start with. It’s simple and the mild and creamy ricotta balances perfectly with the charred and tender zucchini.
  • For the non-meat eaters, shrimp skewers with dill and feta sauce is a must! Feta cheese and dill are the perfect accompaniment to grilled shellfish.
  • With the temperatures rising add a little tropical flare to your burgers. Top them with a homemade spicy and sweet salsa by making a pineapple-jalapeno topping. Make sure you also put out some lettuce, tomato, cheese and onion for the guests who would prefer to keep it simple.
  • Who doesn’t like crispy sausages on the grill? Lighten up your summertime meal by using turkey instead of pork. You’ll find a lot of options for chicken or turkey sausage at your local super market.  This recipe adds grilled polenta and marinated peppers, yum!
  • Don’t forget to supply some beer and wine and non-alcoholic beverages for your guests! If it’s a small group you can do patriotic specialty cocktails.
