Way to kick off the season, right?

We might as well do summer correctly, and throw these kabob onto the grill in this heatwave. We just have to.

Now these are perfect for those summer get-togethers since you can assemble all of these beforehand. Just be sure to keep the butter mixture separately from the assembled skewers.

And thanks to Reynolds handy foil, grilling is even more of a breeze so we have more time to sip on these strawberry pineapple mojitos.
