Off to Market Recap: Cocktail Party Menu

Last Monday I asked you to help me plan a cocktail party for my super smart friends, Elena and Sean, by placing your best cocktail party recipes in the recipe database with the tag Cocktail Party Menu. I told you I needed the following:

  • 4-5 hors d'oeuvre recipes
  • the recipes had to be cold and hot
  • two sweet treat options
  • specialty cocktail

When I went to plan the menu I was super excited to see what you guys had come up with and was utterly and totally disappointed to find that nobody had left me any recipes! Seriously, I was so sad I almost cried. Luckily the database is full of recipes that you have posted and I read through them all and came up with some that I think I can make for this cocktail party.

Lindsb posted her recipe for
Spicy Chinese Five-Spice-Rubbed Chicken Wings with Creamy Cilantro Dipping Sauce

. It sounds mouth watering and sophisticated at the same time perfect for the older, more serious crowd I'll be catering to.

Three more, so

DCStar's
Baked Brie (Party Perfect!)

will be deliciously divine spread on crackers or tiny toasts. I like how she gives her recipe a (name in parenthesis), it makes it totally funtastic.

Celebrity_soup showed an amazingly appetizing recipe for
Lime Meringue Tarts

which would make a fabulous fork-less dessert at any cocktail party.

crispet1's cool
Vodka-Thyme Lemonade

is chic and pretty. It is the ideal unisex cocktail that will appeal to both the girls and the guys at the party.

Thanks for posting your rad recipes in the recipe database!
