The Real Deal: Tips on how to save and serve like a pro at your Independence Day gathering

The price of a summer cookout menu is up 20% due to high food costs. But as News 12's consumer reporter Janice Lieberman tells us in The Real Deal it is all in the presentation.
You could spend a lot of money getting platters of fruit, or fancy pre-made cocktails, or you could do it yourself!
Below are some fun hacks to make your entertaining easier and cheaper:
Make your own dessert truffle with pound cake, whipped cream and fruit.
For an ice cold frosé - open an ice pop, put it in your rosé and you've got yourself a restaurant cocktail!
It's time to grill! How do you know how full your propane tank is? Pour warm water on the side of the tank and feel it - the part that is cold is how much propane you have.
Don't waste money on premade fruit platters - slice up some watermelon and create your own.
