Cocktail parties are one of the easiest ways to entertain your friends. But, if you entertain often, you are probably always looking for a new theme. What’s on my radar right now?! A Tequila Tasting….full of margaritas and lots of Mexican appetizers.
When it comes to setting up your party, create a long buffet table with drinks on one side and appetizers on the other. To add a little decoration, create a runner of sunflower heads going down the center of the table. Since this is a cocktail party, I would center your food around appetizers. We talk a lot about Mexican dinner entrees around here….but I had a great time finding you some yummy appetizer ideas….definitely some new recipes to add to your repertoire.
- Chicken Empanadas
- Roasted Chile Guacamole with Baked Tortilla Chips
- Grilled Mahi Mahi Tacos with Red Cabbage Slaw, Tomato and Avocado Salsa and Pineapple Hot Sauce
- Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp
- Jalapeno Poppers Three Ways
In terms of drinks, offer your guests a few different options. I would suggest a couple different types of margaritas, and tasting stations of tequila. Set your stations up with shot glasses, a bowl of limes, and a small bowl of salt. Make sure to have a few pitchers of water on hand for people to cleanse their palette with after a tasting, too.
I think this party would be a lot of fun….now, who’s going to throw one?!
