SUMMER DRINKS PARTY
volume II

Got a terrace, balcony, patio, porch, sundeck, rooftop, back yard, front yard or side yard? Summer comes with an implicit obligation to share your outdoor real estate and host a drinks party. Need help? The Blood Orange and Cabernet Cocktail or the Mediterranean-esque Meditini complements a range of ethnic appetizers from chicken-scallion satay to spicy hummus. How about a Cojito (translation, a coconut mojito) or a Buzio, a Brazilian-inspired cocktail with exotic fruit flavors like litchi and passion fruit? Both cocktails pair well with ceviche and mini empanadas (recipes below).
