Bar Snacks with Cocktails

bar snacks and cocktails

What's better on a hot Summer day than an ice cold cocktail? I have been thinking up some delicious, fruity, Summer cocktails for a family BBQ that's coming up, and I decided to make a little project out of it, so here we have it:

At Home Cocktails and Bar Snacks

Thankfully I have my husband to test all my kitchen experiments, especially now that the basketball finals are on- he loved watching the Miami Heat dominate the court the other night, while sipping my Mango Mojito! If you are having a BBQ this Summer, or a little get together with friends, try serving one (or both) of my yummy Summer cocktails and all of my homemade bar snacks.


Bourbon Slushie

I served these Bourbon Slushies to the adults at my son's birthday party and people asked me to text them the recipe on the spot, it was so good!

mojito and almonds

Mango Mojito

Tasty, delicious and gorgeous, enjoy a Mango Mojito on a hot Summer day.

Maple Roasted Almonds

Maple Roasted Smoky Almonds

are definitely going to be made and served at every get together I host from now on. I sent a bag to my parents and they told me I should start selling them! Warning: these nuts are addictive.

cheese straws

Cheese Straws

These tasty twists were really fun to make, and even better to eat. Fresh out of the oven, the dough was flaky and the aroma from the cheese and pepper was out of this world. I am definitely going to make these

Cheese Straws

at my Superbowl party this year, they are the perfect addition to my usual menu of stacked Nachos and "faux" meat lasagna.

Hearts of Palm Dip

If you are looking for a new dip, look no further. This

Hearts of Palm Dip

is hands down the easiest, and most delicious dip I have ever made. It is perfect for chips and raw veggies, and when served in a bread bowl, it makes a beautiful centerpiece.

I so enjoyed preparing all these snacks and drinks for you all, I hope you will join me in a L'chaim and let me know what you think in the comments below.
