I'm planning to throw a dinner party for my 30th birthday and would love to serve something a little more interesting/special than just wine with dinner. I'll have a little wine around as an option but I'd like to mix up a special concoction for the evening.
I'm looking for something that is:
- not *too* alcoholic, not a martini or anything. I don't want all my guests to get wasted too early in the evening.
- fairly light-tasting, won't overpower a springtime feast (with lots of herbs, peas, greens, seafood)
- not too sweet or not sweet at all
If I could transform the ingredients into something a little sweeter to serve with dessert, all the better.
Tried searching the boards for ideas but couldn't find much, so any thoughts would be appreciated!
