A sleek and chic guide to party food and drinks, this book is filled with smart ways to make entertaining effortless. Divided into two sections, Cocktails and Canapes, the book will run the gamut of accessibility. You'll find everything from make-ahead alcohol infusions for a 'just add soda water' situation to big-batch versions of cocktail classics—think negroni-style punches and a serves-10 pina colada. In the Food chapter, there will truly be something for everyone, with date, parmesan and pancetta bites to flavor-packed, dairy-free and gluten-free options such as bang bang noodle lettuce cups and quick snack ideas that are almost as fast as opening a packet. What's more, you'll find a list of simple menu planners, the dos and don'ts of party hosting that will make your life simple, and tips and symbols throughout that will indicate what can be made ahead, batch cooked and frozen, as well as prep and cook times and allergen information.
