The aperitif, to start the evening well
What better way to entertain guests in the middle of summer than with a cocktail? With or without alcohol, it is always a good way to refresh yourself. That’s why we suggest our favorite drink of the summer: the Gin fizz summer version! A refreshing sangria, simply perfect for summer.
- 2 oz. gin
- 1 Club soda
- 1/4 cup fresh or frozen
- 1 lemon slice
- 1/2 teaspoon thyme leaf
- 1/2 oz lemon juice
- 1/4 oz maple syrup
To further impress your guests, here are our two bar essentials that will be perfect for the cocktail party. Prepare your cocktail with our cocktail shaker set. Simply add ice and all liquid ingredients and shake. When the mixture is ready, you can pour it into our beautiful summer glasses and add the garnish!
At go, we put the table in reception mode!

Dazzle your guests with this refreshing recipe
Just before the meal, to keep guests waiting, why not serve a refreshing appetizer? We suggest bocconcini, melon and proscuitto brochettes that are quick and delicious. Why make it complicated when you can make it simple? This recipe can easily be prepared in advance. We love it! To add an even tastier touch, we suggest adding a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic cream.
- 1 melon of your choice (cantaloupe or honeydew melon) cut into a ball shape
- 1 package of bocconcini
- 1 package of proscuitto
- olive oil
- balsamic cream
What you will need
To enhance the flavours of your appetizer, we recommend La Belle Excuse’s extra-virgin oil and balsamic cream. The Quebec company harvests the olives used for its products directly in Greece, while bottling them in Quebec. High quality products at an affordable price. You will fall in love with the line.
