18 Adorable Outdoor Summer Food & Drink Essentials

Sure, hitting up a rooftop or open air bar is a safe option for a fun summertime evening. But that type of group gathering can quickly get crowded, expensive, and predictable. What about an outdoor activity that's a little more charming, cheap, and unexpected? We're talking about campfires — and not the kind that you have to hike far into the wilderness and sleep in a tent for (don't worry, we're not sadists). The kind that you can host and toast in your very own backyard or even on a nearby beach bonfire. Because when we grown sick of the city bar scene, it might just be time to throw it back to the childhood vibes of summers past.
Ahead we've rounded up 18 cute camping (or glamping!), outdoor eating and imbibing essentials that will be sure to bring the marshmallow roasting, hotdog toasting, and canteen sipping kumbaya. Now all you need to do is gather a group, assign out some supplies, and pick your night! Note: Actual singing of Kumbaya is optional.
