You and your guests can create some great treats when you set up a make-your-own drinks, dessert or dinner bar. (NAPS)
(NAPSI)—Often, a casual laid-back gathering is way more fun than a
formal one. So ask your guests to roll up their sleeves and put them to work
with a create-your-own bar. Whether it’s
pizza, tacos or ice cream sundaes, you simply set up a bunch of delicious
ingredients and invite guests to develop their own creations.
Bloody (and Virgin) Marys are all
the craze these days. They’ve become much more than a drink, and
if you do it right, they wind up being a meal.
Here are a few fun ideas to get your Bloody Mary bar on:
• Start with the base—pitchers of SuckerPunch
Gourmet Bloody Mary Mix and a bottle of good vodka. Let your guests mix the two as some folks may want to skip the
alcohol but they certainly won’t want to skip on the fun.
• Tall glasses and plenty of ice are a must.
• A salted rim is almost mandatory on each and every glass. A
selection of different flavored salts—garlic, onion, paprika, chili—and
some lime wedges are all it takes. Simply moisten the glass by running the
lime around the rim, then dip it in the flavored
• The real fun begins with the garnishes. Just about anything savory
goes with a Bloody or Virgin Mary. Stalks of celery (of course), chilled
shrimp, bacon, mini meatballs, SuckerPunch Gourmet
pickles, olives, pickled peppers, mini hot dogs, baby sliders, cherry
tomatoes, bocconcini, sardines, smoked oysters,
smoked salmon, mini sushi, mini dim sum, buffalo wings, hard-cooked eggs, the
list goes on.
• Forget about small toothpicks and go for long skewers so guests
can load up on the garnishes. Tip: Use two skewers side by side to ensure the
goodies don’t fall off.
