Hors d'oeuvres, anyone?

Puff_DougiePuff_Dougie Mr. Rogers NeighborhoodPosts: 4,601 ✭✭✭✭✭
So, my buddy is hosting a whiskey tasting party, featuring about a dozen high end scotch and bourbon selections. I want to take some hors d'oeuvres but I have no idea what goes well with scotch and bourbon. 

Any suggestions?

  • You might be able to get away with a charcuterie (spelling) plate. I think it depends on what types of scotch as well (peaty, etc.)

    -Smoked Trout Mousse on Cucumbers, Red Onion & Capers with Dill
    -Pear and Goat Cheese with Candied Pecan Nuts
    -Beef Empanadas with Serrano Chilies and Green Olives
    -Deviled Eggs with Smoked Trout
    -Seared Petite Lamb Chops with Fresh Mint Pesto
    -Tuna Tartar with Chili Aioli on Rice Crisps

    These are all the Hors d'oeuvres that go well at the restaurant I bartend at. 


     
    How do make this text turn upside down?

    Haggis for the scotch. Ribs for the bourbon.

    Awesome event last night. Didn't end up taking hors d'oeuvres. Took Opus X's instead. Most of the guys had never tried one before. My new favorite bourbon is Woodford Double Oak. Here's a few pics...

    Looking sharp Doug.  You would be my favorite guest if you brought Opus apps

    Yeah. There was a cheese and meat tray and lots of chips and stuff. The Opuses were a big hit.

    Thanks. Nothing like watching seven dudes enjoy their first Opus X. Felt like I took the pledge class to Tijuana. LOL!
