what to serve

Food & Drink - - COCTAIL HOUR -

Plan­ning a suc­cess­ful cock­tail party re­quires flex­i­bil­ity, as some guests may pre­fer to sip wine. A good-qual­ity sparkling wine fits in per­fectly with the cock­tail party’s glam­our and sense of oc­ca­sion. From Spain’s Cat­alo­nia re­gion, cava de­liv­ers on value, flavour and food-pair­ing ver­sa­til­ity. Try Se­gura Vi­u­das Brut Re­serve (LCBO

216960, $15.75).

Rosé wines are an­other good op­tion to have on hand. With a range of sweet­ness and a palate brim­ming with red fruit flavours, rosés are lovely to sip, at­trac­tive in the glass and sen­sa­tional with fin­ger-foods. Remy Pan­nier Rosé d’An­jou AOC

(LCBO 12641, $15.60) has medium sweet­ness and juicy straw­berry and citrus flavours, while On­tario’s Cave Spring Dry Rosé VQA (LCBO

295006, $15.95) is ex­tra-dry with a vi­brant tex­ture.
