June 21 marks the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. To celebrate the solstice, invite friends over to savor a leisurely meal outdoors. Begin the evening with frosty blended mojitos, which set the stage for the Caribbean-cool meal to follow. Infused with tropical flavors of lime and spices, the menu requires minimal cooking, making it ideal for warm-weather entertaining. Among the offerings are shrimp ceviche and beef tenderloin that is quickly seared, then sprinkled with cilantro and mint. A deck or patio provides the perfect setting so you can enjoy the evening breeze and watch the late summer sunset.
