A new use for those martini glasses.
My favorite party to cater has always been a cocktail party. I’m always on the look for new and interesting ideas for finger foods and if you ever need any ideas for finger foods, take a look at my appetizer section here on the blog.
A friend of mine gave me these beautiful martini glasses one year for Christmas. Of course I made martinis in them, what else would they be used for????
I have used them many times for nuts, dips, even as small vases for flowers, and this great little smoked salmon spread. For a golden wedding anniversary I catered I used this gold netty stuff to surround the martini glasses and then I used the different glasses to hold the mousse (see pickled ginger rose and bell pepper star garnish), the chopped eggs, red onions and capers. The glasses made such a beautiful presentation.
Dig out some of those beautiful glasses you may have and use them for something other than a cocktail. You can take a recipe as simple as this salmon spread or any spread and make it look so enticing just by the way you present it.
