Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea and Tapas

Ah, summer. Time for fun with family and friends. I love throwing easy, relaxing themed get-togethers. Tea Parties are one of my favorites. Of course, for summer that means refreshing, ice cold tea.

Tea parties can be a lot of fun! You can hold a tea party anytime of day. Stage one for the perfect brunch, dinner or warm summer night fun.

Tapas or appetizers are often my go-to choice for food. Everyone can pick and choose what they want to try.

  • Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea Sorta Sweet
  • Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea Sweet

You can feel confident serving your guests Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea. Every Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea brings you true tea taste from all-natural ingredients. I love that Snapple® makes several levels of sweetness, too. No worries, there will be something for everyone to enjoy!

I’m offering something a little spicy with Spicy Crab Spread. This spread blends juicy crab meat, cream cheese, jalapeño peppers, horseradish and more served on garlic crostini.

A light canapé of cucumber topped with velvety Avocado Mousse is a great summer combo.

Mini Quiche are easy to make and you can personalize quiche with a number of add-ins. I mixed it these up with herbs, mushrooms and several kinds of cheese. You can add meat like ham or bacon or even seafood! Combine your choices any way you like.
