Olympics Party

** Update **
Katie . . . . I hope you don't mind but I added a cocktail to your party. Raspberry Cosmopolitan!
Cheers -- Laurie

Laurie, good idea! That's perfect for the "Go USA!" red, white & blue theme. This makes me think we should suggest Wild Maine Blueberry Mixer for blue cocktails too. Cheers back at you! --Katie

Have you been invited to one of these yet? I went to one last Friday for the opening ceremonies. Since the Olympics only come around every two years, it is a great excuse for a party. There are several ways you can turn Olympics viewing into a fun culinary theme.

1) Red, White & Blue
Root for the Americans and serve patriotic-looking foods. For this I recommended our Mixed Berries with Sweetened Creme Fraiche.

2) Sample foods from the host country
This year this would entail Canadian cuisine. How about serving some Mini Salmon Wasabi Appetizers?

Or, what's more Canadian than maple? They even have the leaf on their flag! So, here's another Canadian inspired appetizer, Maple Syrup Caramelized Nuts.

3) Looking for entertainment beyond the games? Host your own Olympics trivia. Ask questions during commercial breaks and award gold and silver chocolate coins as "medals." At the end of the night the winner is the one with the most medals... aka coins.

Enjoy watching this year's Olympic games!
