Grilling for the gang this weekend? Here’s a cool cocktail to serve while the coals heat up. In a large pitcher, mix 3 ¾ cups sweet white (such as a late-harvest riesling) with 2 ¼ cups fresh orange juice and 1 cup Campari. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. Fill tall glasses with ice, pour the cocktail over the ice and serve. Serves 10.

This Father’s Day you may make his day, thanks to the Detroit Tigers and Miller Lite’s original can. To help Dad win a chance to throw out the first pitch when the Tigers take on the Minnesota Twins at Comerica Park June 15, fans with an Instagram account are encouraged to upload photos of them with their own fathers and hashtag them #HerestoDad by May 31. Fifty of those who enter — and show the best photos — will win tickets and entry to the Party in the Park picnic, complete with food and Miller Lite. Of those, one lucky fan will be chosen to throw out the first pitch. For information on the contest, visit tigers.com/millerlite.
