Finger food

What better way to chill out over a weekend than to organize a cozy cocktail party! Treat your guests to the best of cocktails and tasty finger foods. Finger foods bring out the sleeping artist in you by allowing you many ways to present munchies in a variety of appetizing ways from Mexican tacos and enchiladas to sausage rolls and kebabs.

Finger foods can range from previous day's party leftovers to grilled mushrooms, tortilla chips or kebabs. Be it shrimps or Chinese chicken wings or even fresh crunchy vegetables with an array of dips - let your taste buds savor the experience. Just keep in mind to make your finger food just big enough to eat civilly in one piece and yet not small enough to pick up two at a time.
