  1. Melon, ham, and mozzarella skewers.
  2. Mini zucchini polenta muffins.
  3. Crab Rillettes with Lime.
  4. Tomato, olive, and parmesan bruschetta: With tomatoes, black olives, and parmesan cheese, these Italian-style bruschettas will make you crunch with pleasure during your appetizers or your summer meals, greedy and colorful.
  5. Guacamole: After living in Mexico, guacamole has become my favorite aperitif. All my friends love it and often ask me to prepare it for them. The real Guacamole does not contain lemon because the taste is altered, and the simple fact of leaving the pits inside the preparation (it is also decorative), prevents it from turning black. This is a trick that a Mexican cook gave me… Excellent!
  6. Crispy olive bites with cheese.
  7. Mini spicy bell pepper cannelés.
  8. Whiskey, green tea, lemon, and mint cocktail: Looking for an original and tasty cocktail recipe? Consider this whiskey cocktail.

Add to that a tangy lime juice with sugar and some mint leaves and you will get this famous original cocktail. Enjoy it during your evenings with friends or during an aperitif with your family. Get a head start by brewing your green tea a few hours before serving.
