2. Brand your steak

7. Offer more than just beer

It’s always cocktail hour in summer. Or cocktail night. Or cocktail afternoon. Or even cocktail day. Don’t judge me. Just drink these grapefruit wonders.

9. Clean up in a flash

Cleaning burnt-on food? Ain’t nobody got time for that. Clean super fast and super smart with vinegar, onions, and coffee. Seriously.
