Celebrating Summer Solstice: 6 Recipes for the Summer Solstice

Jun 14, 2016 | Breakfast, Dessert, Drinks, Vegetarian Recipes

Hello my hungry friends,

One thing I love about any holiday or celebration are the traditions and origins that go with them. Although, I do have to be honest and point out that food typically plays a pretty big role in most traditions….and the Summer Solstice, or Midsummer as it is called in many cultures, has some delicious traditions. One of the main food types in a typical Solstice celebration would be bread or pastries flavored with herbs and paired with vegetables and of course wine. Today for instead of just one recipe, I have decided to post my very first roundup of my top 6 Summer Solstice recipes for you and your family to enjoy! Does your family have a traditional food you eat during this time of year?

Top 5 Summer Solstice Recipes

1 : Summer Solstice Honey Cookies

“Looking for a festive way to celebrate the upcoming summer solstice? Well these aromatic sunny cookies may be just the ticket. Made with sacred herbs and flowers of the sun, they’re filled with the gathering magic of midsummer traditions. And served up at a summer solstice picnic, they will delight young and old. After, all doesn’t everyone love a pretty cookie?”

Check out Gather Victoria’s blog for more information on well being through wild food.

2 : Summer Solstice Collins

“This cocktail is a take on a Tom Collins but with a twist. Instead of gin I’ve used vodka and added some blood orange liqueur to the mix. A bit more lemon seals the deal and the result is a light, crisp and altogether refreshing cocktail for summer or in this case, summer solstice!”

3 : Midsummer Mead

Litha is a great time to take advantage of nature’s abundance – there’s stuff blooming everywhere – and brewing a batch of homemade mead is an excellent way to do this! Mead is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented honey, so what better way to celebrate the summer?”
