Apéro Friday


I'm loving summer apéros right now. Actually, let's just scrap dinner. Let's have an evening of gorgonzola cheese and meaty bresaola instead. Parfait

The cocktails you're seeing on the photos are pomegranate and rosemary white sangrias. I found the recipe on but let's face it, I'm rubbish at following recipes so mine didn't turn out quite as nice-looking as hers. I kind of tweaked the recipe as well because I was missing some ingredients. They did taste wonderfully summery regardless. I used Chardonnay, lemonade, lemon juice, orange juice, a spoon of sugar and the sprigs of rosemary along with a few pomegranate seeds. Lush! 

The tartines are simply warm baguette with gorgonzola cheese and a drizzle of honey on top. I added some hazelnuts around because this cheese combined with honey and nuts is absolutely fabulous.  It'd probably work really well with figs too. You should try if you haven't already.

Vegetable crisps are a must when you want to serve something else than your same old same old salted crisps. My favourites ones are the dark purple ones, they're made of beetroot. I also like the sweet potato ones (dark orange). The lighter ones were made of parsnip.

Last but not least, I garnished my platter with some charcuterie because to me an apéro is not an apéro without it. 

I hope you like the look and sound of it! 

Happy Friday
