Memorial Day is our first opportunity to kick back with friends and celebrate the arrival of summer. This menu of casual backyard barbecue fare fits the bill perfectly: Start off with pitchers of spicy summery cocktails like the mezcalita, paired with finger foods like deviled eggs, pickled watermelon, and one-bite fried oysters with remoulade. Warm up the grill for Alabama-style chicken sandwiches and burgers served with a colorful array of toppings, from piquant pimento cheese to homemade zucchini pickles, bibb lettuce, and crispy bacon. Tangy coleslaw, barbecued baked beans, and a salad of fresh spring greens round out the offerings. And don't forget to save room for dessert—rhubarb pie topped with homemade ice cream!
