Tati Enjoying a Peach Sangria

I hosted an all girls cocktail party/wedding shower for my friend Tatiana on Friday night.  She has found her true love and we couldn’t be happier for her.  Her knight in shining armour is Juan Manuel, a handsome Spaniard who works in the tennis business.  He is crazy about Tati (who wouldn’t be?) and she is crazy about him.  He is taking her to Spain with him where they will be married and live.  They will live in a beautiful seaside town in south-east Spain.  

Since she being whisked off to Spain, I thought I would give her a “tapas” party.  Tapas means “small bites” in Spanish.  I searched for tapas recipes and came up with the following menu:  

  • White Peach Sangria
  • Peach Spritzers (no alcohol)
  • Titaina (warm tomato relish with tuna)
  • Empanadas, beef & pork and shrimp
  • Tortilla Espanola (Spanish Frittata)
  • Calamari
  • Cheese and Fig Tray   
  • Olive Tray
  • Flan

Five Varieties of Olives

Spanish Cheeses with Crackers Figs and Fig Jam

Warm Tomato and Tuna Relish

Tortilla Espanola with Potato and Ham
