Like most everyone these days, the Brouwer family is trying to stay busy! We miss our local eateries and would love nothing more than to hop on a flight to anywhere. Since that’s impossible…. we decided to bring our favorite delicacies from around the world to our own backyard. In other words, we went “full Epcot” and it was amazing. Here you’ll find a “map” to help guide you on your own Sip and Snack.
First Stop: Caribbean! Pina Coladas I used this recipe. And this mango salsa Second Stop: France! Crostini’s with brie, honey crisp apple, and honey. Cover slices of bread with olive oil and toast. Top with a slice of brie, apple, and top with honey Pair with champagne (obviously)! Third Stop: Italy! I made this pasta salad To drink: Aperol Spritz! Combine equal parts Aperol and Sparkling wine. Garnish with orange slices. Fourth Stop: Mexico! Margaritas and MORE margaritas. 3 ounces tequila 2 ounces lime juice 1 oz simple syrup 1/2 teaspoon orange liqueur Fifth and final stop- Germany! Soft pretzels from Trader Joe’s and German Beer. The goal for this Sip and Snack is to spend more time enjoying than prepping food or drinks. Give different family members different responsibilities and prep the majority of the food ahead of time!
