Strawberry daiquiri is a very easy sweet and sour cocktail that is perfect to be enjoyed at any time of the year!
So it’s this time of the year when there are a lot of parties happening. Literally party after another! Luckily not every single party is at my house, although many of them are. And as I am a food blogger, my friends always get so excited when I invite them over, as they expect really good food and lots of good drinks.
It can be a bit stressful as everyone’s expectations are really high, and everything needs to be perfect too! So I try not to stress myself out too much by planning everything ahead. I create a menu and make a list of things that I need to buy and cook. I also take into consideration my friends’ dietary requirements. One of my friends is gluten free. And for that I try to make food that is suitable for everyone to share.
One of the things that was a real hit at the last party that I hosted, is this strawberry daiquiri. This strawberry daiquiri is not served only during summer! It’s sweet, it’s sour, and it’s made with rum. I’m one of these people who like to beat any dull and gloomy day by adding colourful ingredients. Everyone loved the strawberry daiquiri at my party, especially my Russian friends who believe that anything icy is perfect for cold weather (In Russia people LOVE eating ice cream during winter!).
So drinks are sorted, but what about food?
ICELAND LUXURY FOOD AND PLATTERS
When I have enough time, I cook at home and buy some other bits to put on the table. But when I’m super busy, I get frozen ready foods and platters from Iceland Foods. Their luxury range is very impressive, and there are sooo many options to choose from. So this is what I got for my last party…
Rock Lobster Thermidor
Coconut Leaf Prawn Parcels
Chicken & Chorizo Cups
Smoked Salmon Snowflake Terrine
And I had a fancy table full of awesome food for my friends to enjoy! Moreover, all the food was ready to be served just on time!
All the frozen luxury foods and platters from Iceland Foods are ready or almost ready to eat, and are very easy to prepare. I’ve been shopping at Iceland Foods a lot for the past year, and you have no idea how much did I change perception towards frozen foods. Always, I thought that frozen food wasn’t delicious or healthy. But little did I know! Iceland Foods definitely changed this idea in my head, and now I stock up on a lot of different frozen foods from Iceland.
The coconut leaf prawn parcels are just adorable! These are packed in real coconut leaf parcels and they’re really fun to eat! They’re also so easy to prepare. All you need to do is steam them for 10 minutes and they’re ready to eat. Inside each parcel you will find a mix of prawns, squid and edamame.
I now keep these prawn parcels in my freezer for quick lunches on the go. Very healthy and delicious!
The rock lobster Thermidor is absolutely amazing! Very delicious and very well prepared. Just pop it on a baking tray, and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes and it’s ready. I served it with a simple salad and everyone was really impressed.
And finally, how adorable is this smoked salmon snowflake? This is smoked salmon snowflake terrine and it’s very tasty. Plus, it doesn’t require any cooking. Just leave it to defrost in the fridge for 3 hours, or it can be even left overnight. It’s very pretty and perfect for Christmas!
Iceland Luxury Raspberry & Pistachio Layered Pavlova
Iceland Cheesey Jalapeños Wrapped in Bacon
Iceland Chicken Nachos with Dip
Iceland Luxury Sushi Platter
From desserts I got the Iceland Luxury 2 Sicilian Lemon Tartlets and they’re sooo good!
