Little Cherry Taster Party
This is not how parties have to be though. The jovial feeling we enjoy at various fun-for-all-ages events in the summer (think barbecues and beach trips) can be recreated in late winter and early spring. You just need a bit of creativity, the perfect party ware and a bar stocked full of the right libations.
Instead of sticking with the usual merlot, bitter and brandy though, you should swap winter warmers for fresh and fruity flavours instead. You will be surprised just how much of a difference the right drinks can make.
We suggest keeping the decorations and presentation simple; in fact, if you stock up on some of our disposable party plates, a few strings of bunting or some biodegradable balloons, you should be all set. For a cosier affair, you can light a few organic candles and pop them in various lanterns, glass jars and holders.
As important as the ambience is for a summer flavours taster party, the main feature is the drinks that everyone is going to be enjoying. So let’s take a look at three superb options for a Little Cherry Taster Party. Of course, in true Little Cherry style, we have picked a Cherry-and-Berry theme. Read on for our suggestions.
This very special black and red raspberry liqueur is a French-inspired favourite. It smells and looks as good as it tastes, but it can have a bit of a kick. Usually added to various cocktails (especially the champagne variety), this versatile little drink is a must-have.
More than just a Deana Carter hit, strawberry wine is a sweet and fruity alternative to the traditional grape version. If you don’t fancy a strawberry wine, you can opt for a cherry wine or perhaps a strawberry cider. While the cherry wine packs a tart little punch, the strawberry version is sweet and delicious; a real, summery treat.
If you feel a little adventurous, you could even make a round of cherry cocktails. One popular recipe is this Sour Cherry Gin Sling recipe from Food and Wine. It takes a little more prep than popping a Maraschino cherry into a straightforward Manhattan or Martini, but it will be worth it.
These three options are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to party-perfect drinks. You could even host a “make your own cocktail” party, with plenty of disposable cups (for quality control) and all manner of weird and wonderful ingredients.
