(NU)-According to Alex Hitz, author of the new cookbook “My Beverly Hills Kitchen: Classic Southern Cooking With a French Twist,” the dinner party is the great social equalizer.
But, with the advent of Happy Hour, the idolization of restaurants and an overall emphasis on digital congregation, some argue the dinner party as we know it is dying. The New York Times went so far as to call such gatherings “outmoded.”
So, let’s step it up a notch. Take the classic dinner party and give it a fresh coat of paint: turn it into a terrific after-party. There’s no reason your guests have to go home by 9 p.m. Build on the great conversation and delicious recipes of dinner by serving fun cocktails and tempting desserts.
Hint: Start the after party off the right way by offering friends dessert with a little kick. Like what? Like alcohol-infused ice cream.
That’s right, folks. Now, when picking up a bottle of wine for dinner, hosts and hostesses can grab a box of creamy and icy treats — called SnoBar (snobarcocktails.com) — where each serving equals one full cocktail.
Anyone can kick off an after-party by serving Margarita or Cosmopolitan ice-pops, all made with premium tequila, vodka and triple sec. SnoBar also makes alcohol-infused ice cream and sorbet in a variety of creative flavors.
For instance, Pink Squirrel ice cream is made with brandy and almond liqueur for a sweet, ambrosial flavor. Or, try Grasshopper — a minty alternative with brandy and creme de menthe. Other SnoBar flavors include Brandy Alexander and Brandy Alexander Chocolate Chip.
Puzant Khatchadourian. But, instead of a vending machine that makes pizza using natural, fresh ingredients, the baker designed a baguette vending machine. Just like the automated pizzeria, it rolls out warm, freshly baked baguettes 24 hours around the clock.
