First up – bruschetta. This is a summer staple at my house. All you need is some fresh ripe tomatoes, a little garlic and olive oil, and some fresh herbs. Chop everything up in bowl, toast a few slices of French stick, and you’re done. Well, almost! The kicker in this recipe is a splash of vodka. Just enough to turn this popular appetizer into a party favourite. Did you know that vodka pairs perfectly with tomatoes? As any Caesar or Bloody Mary lover will tell you, it’s a match made in heaven, and this bruschetta proves it.

I had some girlfriends drop in the other day, and I whipped up a little “drunken” bruschetta. What to serve with it? A vodka drink of course! Vodka is considered by many to be a cleaner alcohol to drink, and I decided to stay away from calorie-filled mixes and throw together a little flavour infusion of my own to create a Mint, Cucumber, and Lime Vodka Cocktail. Sounds delicious, non?
