Ideas for Happy Hour

We had a Happy Hour with friends yesterday and I wanted to make it easy so I served
bread, seasonings and dipping oil:
I served Tuscan seasonings to mix with EVOO:
and garlic and herb seasonings:
I also made hors d'oeuvre pops with these ingredients:
Quick and easy:

And Happy Hour would be nothing without the "happy" - Watermelon Martinis:
Recipe for Watermelon Martinis:
5 cups watermelon chunks, mash and strain
6 T Lime Juice
3/4 cup Citrus vodka
Place in freezer for an hour to chill ~ serve in a martini glass with a slice of lime
Don't forget the umbrella!

  10. That martini does look good! I've got some watermelon leftover, but no vodka. I bet white rum would work. I'll have to let ya know how it turns out!
