Appetizer Pairing Suggestions
When picking a signature drink, you may want to opt for a his and hers option. Certainly not required, though. Since your cocktails will most likely be served with hors d’oeuvres, consider pairings of food that complement the flavor of your drinks. Avoid anything that is too spicy and may take away from the fruity taste in these cocktails. Some yummy appetizer options include: fig with cream cheese bruschetta bites, spring rolls with shrimp, crab cakes (always a crowd pleaser), and bacon and brie tartlets.
