Holiday Cocktail Soirée

Pesto Shrimp for BGSK Cocktail Party

The cocktail party–there’s nothing more elegant, is there? I love puzzling out the best combination of bites and drinks to serve to friends, and I think the combo below is a good one. Guests sip sweet cider spiked with rye and munch on popcorn before moving over to slightly heavier fare–shrimp cocktail, baked brie bites, and an ultra easy dip that can be made ahead completely. Dessert is a brownie bite laced with raspberry puree.

Figure that each guest will eat 5 to 7 pieces of food–that should give you a good benchmark for amounts to make. (More tips on hosting a cocktail party.)
