If your plans for this 4th of July are to kick back at home with family and friends, here are several suggestions that will get the celebration started, outshine the fireworks and separate your party from the rest of the neighborhood like succession from England — you will be the king and queen of the grill. Following are several of our red, white and blue ideas.
Omaha Steaks is offering a fantastic assortment of burgers, brats and prime meats for the holiday. The delivery package can be tailored to your taste and party plans. We recommend the Grilling Favorites selection that includes 4 Top Sirloins, 4 Boneless Chicken Breasts, 4 Boneless Pork Chops, 4 Omaha Steaks Burgers and 8 Gourmet Jumbo Franks. It’s also wise to add their Filet Mignon Burgers, Bratwurst, and Italian Sausages. For the invited pescatarian check out their seafood and fish options and make sure you pick up plenty of veggies to grill from your local grocer.
If you want to set the party aflame like a Grucci Family fireworks display, add the Omaha Steak’s 4th of July Sizzler to your menu. It includes: 4 Ribeyes, 4 Boneless Pork Chops, 4 additional Omaha Steak Burgers and more Jumbo Franks.

For wine selections this holiday, we recommend the Ravenswood Old Vine Zinfandel. For over 35 years this company from Sonoma County, CA has crafted some of the best zinfandels to leave a vineyard. The winds off the Pacific Ocean and fortified soil have produced rich wines that are dense, with hints of blackberry, cherry, vanilla and spice. Paired with a steak or burger, your guests will wave an American flag while raising a glass or two.

For those who prefer a white or blush wine, we suggest SIMI, also crafted in Sonoma County. The Dry Rosé is exceptional with fresh and fruity notes that are crisp and clean. This wine makes a perfect wine spritzer when you add a little simple syrup, splash of lime juice then top with club soda, served on ice and garnish with a lemon — alone it compliments pork, brats and charcuterie.
