3 Summer Snack & Cocktail Pairings



        Summer Snacks & Cocktails  

I’ve always been a big snacker – throughout my adult life I’ve consistently had three meals a day with a morning and afternoon snack (until recently when I seem to be eating around the clock!). I try to keep my snacks healthy– think rice cakes or apples with almond butter, carrots & hummus, a smoothie or cheese & crackers but sometimes you need something easy to grab for on-the-go. That’s where Nourish Snacks come in! My friend Julia introduced me to the brand which was started by Joy Bauer and offers pre-packaged, healthy snacks that are all under 200 calories. The best part is how good they taste, I’ve had a hard time picking a favorite but the half-popped corn in Mr.Popular & the Menage-A-Mix are among my favorites. I created three summer cocktails (which I can not wait to sip!) and Nourish snack pairings that I’m excited to share with you today!

Mint Moscow Mule & Snack Mix

 The first combo is Mind Your P’s & BBQ’s  & Mint Moscow Mules. To me this snack is like a healthy version of your typical bar nibbles but with a nice BBQ kick. It’s packed with protein and the roasted chickpeas are so good! Give your Moscow Mule a refreshing twist by adding a teaspoon of mint simple syrup and garnishing with mint leaves.

Orange Shandy & Half Popped Corn

Next up, Orange Shandys & Mr.Popular. I love a good summer shandy – it’s funny to me that so many beer brands offer them ‘pre-made’ now. I prefer mixing a little citrus juice, (in this case orange) to my favorite light beer and garnishing with a fruit slice. If it’s really hot out, I’ll even serve this over ice. The perfect snack to nibble on while sipping a refreshing Orange Shandy is Mr. Popular, it’s really hard to just eat one package of this crunchy snack — and the half-popped corn is much better than the leftovers at the bottom of your popcorn bowl!

Champagne & Rose

 And lastly, what my be my favorite pairing is Rose Scented Prosecco with Almond To Cherries. I’ve been on a cherry kick the past year or so, I love to use them in smoothies but they also make a great sweet treat during the day and pair perfectly with the sweet floral bubbly! To make this easy ‘cocktail’ just add a splash of rose water (be sure you get the edible variety) or rose simple syrup to a glass of chilled Prosecco.
