You’re having friends over for before the Pride Parade, you’re opening your Summer house or you’re partying poolside. Set up some great seasonal cocktails and easy treats to welcome and wow them!
Simplicity will make your event easier and you’ll have more time to enjoy yourself and your guests.
1. For a Pre-Pride Brunch: Buy bagels, muffins or pastries from your local bakery, serve with butter and jam. Limit your beverages to Coffee and Mimosas (by the pitcher, pre-made.) Drop a fresh berry in each champagne glass to liven up your mimosas.
2. For a Casual Open House: Prepare some simple sandwiches stacked on platters. Serve Lemonade, Iced Tea and one Signature Cocktail, like my "Savory Italian Sangria".
3. For a Pool Party: Think light finger foods. Simple ENDIVE TOPPED WITH YOUR FAVORITE SPREADS looks and tastes amazing. You can top them with store bought Sun Dried Tomato Spread or your favorite dip. Also, offer a great tropical cocktail like my ISLAND SURF as well as soft drinks.
Tropical Cocktails go over well at almost any Summer Party. Rum lends itself to great hot weather libations, like in my ISLAND SURF.
What You Need:
2 oz Malibu Pineapple Rum
