(Family Features) - Summertime always calls to mind images of warm days and cool nights, gentle breezes and barbecuing. This year why not treat yourself and some friends to great barbecue recipes featuring an old standby, molasses.

The savory sweetness of all-natural molasses will impart moistness and a delicate caramel aroma to all kinds of recipes.

Follow up your tangy new creations with a drink that's as pretty as a summer's day and the perfect complement to one too. Lemon juice from concentrate will add the zing you're looking for in many of your summer recipes.
