what's a winning Appetizer and drink combination?

chalenegirl | Aug 22, 2012 09:02 PM

I was invited to a cocktail party where the concept is that everyone brings an appetizer and drink. there will be about 20 couples and the best combinations wins a prize! this being said, i really want to win and would love if you guys have any ideas! So, what's your favorite pairing that you've tried, or make at home?

some general things to keep in mind:
- appetizer should be able to travel at least 1 hr in the car, so perhaps room-temp to cold when served
- need to have about 40 mini servings (i'm not on a very tight budget but i can't afford cavier for 40 people!)
- can be paired with any alcoholic beverage (beer, wine, spirit) or cocktail (sangria, mojito etc)
- i suppose store bought apps are ok....if you're thinking this, i live in Canada. :)

also any websites you know about how to pair food with drinks would be helpful as well. thanks everyone for your help!!!
