Over the weekend we had a few friends in for hors d’œuvres and cocktails. For a sweet nibble to wind the evening down the Mister decided to go with a Jamie Oliver recommendation – frozen grapes, dark and milk chocolate chunks… and Grappa!
The frozen grapes and chocolate were a hit with me, but the Grappa, well… do you know Grappa?
Grappa is a fragrant, grape-based brandy that originated in Italy, and comes in a wide variety of options. I can see why it is paired with frozen grapes and chocolate, it just didn’t really connect with my taste buds!
The highlight for me was instead, the beautiful vintage cordial glasses we served the Grappa in! Here’s a closer look at the blown glass blue-amber beauty!
Do you know about Blue Amberina glass, aka Bluerina glass? If not, you can jump over to this post!
We also enjoyed using a vintage Baribomaid board to serve everything on. This classic board, made by Baribocraft Canada, belongs to us, but did you know you can also pick up Baribocraft pieces at Audrey Would? By the way, Jamie Oliver collects Baribocraft Salad bowls, mentioned in an article about Baribocraft here!
I hope you’re having a great week. If you’ve had Grappa, how did you like it?
Thanks for stopping by!
