toasted almond

A great way to set the tone for a party is to have a themed cocktail. I always provide a signature cocktail at every event!

I also rim the martini glasses with crushed almonds. Just add equal parts of honey and water on a small rimmed plate and add the crushed almonds to another plate. Dip the rim of the glasses into the honey water and then into the almonds. Do this several hours in advance of your party to allow the almonds to adhere to the rim.
