August in New England means one thing...
Country Fest! People travel from all over New England to Foxboro, Massachusetts for this concert. While many country concerts take place throughout the summer, this is the one country concert to attend. This year’s roster of country concerts makes it even more special. Gillette is the only stadium you can see headliner Kenny Chesney playing his 2017 tour, marking his 14th performance at the stadium! No matter what part of New England you're from, you know that the party doesn’t start at the show; it starts in the parking lot! To aid in your celebration and help you with your pre-fest party, we came up with a few drink recipes inspired by Kenny Chesney’s songs.
All The Pretty Girls Lemonade:
Inspired by Kenny’s Song, All the Pretty Girls Said, this cocktail is a new rendition to an old time summer classic!
