East Side, Brooklyn and Queens: Rejoice! The fireworks are finally back between the boroughs. And some serious rooftopping is about to happen.

Whether you’re attending a riverside shindig or firing up the grill yourself, here are some made-in-NYC sauces to surprise and delight your fellow pyromaniacs friends.

If you’re having burgers Skip the Hellmann’s and opt for a flavorful artisanal spread. White Truffle from Empire Mayonnaise adds a gourmet kick to beef or black-bean patties. Find it at select stores like Dean & DeLuca in Soho.

If you’re having brats You wouldn’t dare leave off the sauerkraut. Brooklyn Brine has a perfectly tangy variation to complement your sausages. Find it at select stores like Whole Foods citywide.

If you’re having chicken or fish Here is where you need a little something spicy. Look no further than Bacchanal, a hot and fruity Caribbean pepper sauce that we personally can’t get enough of. Find it at select stores like By Brooklyn in Carroll Gardens.
