Vibrance and Spice
Fall cocktail parties demand good drinks and even better appetizers.
(page 1 of 6)
Dare we say that fall is the loveliest season in Marin? Clear skies dablle in brilliance, and the air is soft and warm, like a pat of silken butter. The tilt of the turning earth shrouds us in a gauzy glow of sunshine, while shadows creep and days shorten, ushering in cool and crisp evenings. Outdoor time is at a premium now, and there is no reason to stop entertaining alfresco. Invite a group of friends over for an end-of-day cocktail, light the fire pit and candles, supply a pile of wraps and throws, and have a sensational party in the golden evening light. These appetizers will feed a small crowd, maybe even stand in for dinner. Spicy, warming and fresh, they make good cause of local Marin ingredients while complementing the fall season with vibrance, spice and heat. Click through to view each recipe.
