Drinks Party Canapes

 Nearly every Christmas in the week coming up to Christmas Eve I love to throw a drinks party and have twenty or so friends over to get into the Christmas spirit.

Along with the usual suspects of Mince Pies, Christmas cake I make a selection of Canapes in Croustades. This year I had some lovely Foie Gras which I put a touch of Marmalade in the bottom of the Croustade and topped with the Foie Gras
They were delicious, I also had the smallest tin of Beluga Caviar, so just enough for these Smoked Salmon with a Lemon Creme Fraiche
And to stretch it out baby Cherry Tomatoes cut into Quarters with a Cream Cheese topped with a drop of Basil Oil. I just love these one bite little gems, so easy and yet perfect with gallons of Champagne.

We all had a ball, and I have decided to do a lot more drinks parties throughout the year.


  1. Wonderfully crisp and always interesting!

  2. These canapes look so delicious i am going to try them. Thank you, and I like the idea of a drinks party instead of a full on dinner party. I do think that we should eat food which is not cruel to animals like foie gras.
