Celebrate Mother's Day with a cocktail-tea party!

Celebrate Mother's Day with a cocktail tea party

We have been so busy with Greek Easter that we kind of forgot that Mother's Day is just around the corner! Some of our favorite tips for a Mother's Day Brunch and my mom's handmade Greek pie with dough made from scratch featured in past blog posts. But this year we decided to try something different and celebrate the moms in our lives with a cocktail party, complete with tasty, and easy-to-make, meze-appetizers - read on for the recipes and enjoy!

A cocktail with a Greek Mountain Tea twist

Enjoy my friend Onassis' delicate and aromatic cocktail with Mountain Tea. He  dedicated this to his grandmother, who'd serve him a cup of Greek herbal tea and listen to his stories of college life.

Easy..and tasty...Spinach & Feta Filo Shells

Maria's Homemade Meatballs

You all know that I love to play with our Artisans' products and one of my favorite hacks was using Sparoza's Greek Farmer Salad Mix to liven up my usual meatballs. This is a good recipe to make ahead of time - like many Greek dishes, these keftedákia always taste better the day after!

Three authentically Greek Meze appetizers

It also wouldn't be a Greek party without classic vegetarian dips served with pita bread! Enjoy our tyrokafterí spicy feta dip,  tzatziki aromatic yogurt dip and an authentic melitzanosalata eggplant dip with your Mother's Day cocktails.
