Early fall in New York City, the days of excitement and beauty. Our gorgeous city, the Big Apple, cherishes the get-togethers with friends and family during this cozy season. As we welcome the golden Autumn, we wanted to say thank you and farewell to the muggy days of summer with an urban style bash.
As any New Yorker knows, space is a luxury here. It sometimes seems that we live in a giant ant colony. However, we got extremely lucky with a garage roof and amazing neighbors, in beautiful Brooklyn, who were fine with us having a little soirée.
For everyone's enjoyment we brought out a movie projector and decided to a play, once the sun sets, a beloved classic film, "Breakfast at Tiffany's". In the meantime, while we were preparing the snacks and drinks, the kids enjoyed a game of Twister on a warm urban afternoon. Laughter guaranteed!
For this event we decided to have some finger food, a delicious pasta salad and a couple of signature cocktails to impress our guests.
Our assortment tray consisted of amazing finds from an Aldi store that we are so fortunate to have near by. The variety of fresh cheese, smoked meats and fresh fruits and vegetables kept everyone happy.
For our younger guests we had caramel apples as a treat which was also an Aldi store find.
The pasta salad was a delicious addition to our table. For the recipe please click on the video below.
Our first signature cocktail was an Apple Cosmopolitan. Which is oooh so yummy and refreshing:
2 oz Svedka vodka
1 oz Master of Mixes Sour Apple Martini Mixer
Shake the ingredients in a shaker
Strain into glass
Add a splash of Sprite
Garnish with cucumber slices
We added a bit of gold as a garnish as well
We decided to call our second signature cocktail "San Pellegrino Breeze". It is a super easy to make and a delicious drink.
2 oz of Captain Morgan Spiced rum
Pour the rum over ice
Fill the rest of the glass with San Pellegrino Prickly Pear Sparkling Water
Garnish with orange slices, lime and cocktail cherries

As the sun set, we all gathered around the screen and enjoyed a relaxing urban evening!
