Chef Adam Cutsinger has hand-picked three of his favorite cocktails to pair with yummy snacks AND to compliment the [hopefully] warm and sunny long weekend.
First stop - perfect for an Easter Brunch - is the Russian Punch. This beautiful punch is perfect with blinis . Although blinis are traditionally topped with caviar, you can substitute sour cream, ham, lox, some other kind of fish, or place a dollop of orange marmalade on top each blin, er, silver dollar sized pancake.
And Chef Adam’s favorite Spring cocktail (this year at least) is the Blue Marlin, which looks like the ocean on a sunny day (which his foggy San Francisco has just revealed!). Garnish with orange wedge, orange twist or cherry. Serve this festive drink with boneless chicken wings roasted in citrus-ginger sauce and dipped in creamy wasabi dressing. Yum!
