It’s no secret that Tahoe has an ample amount of choices for Après – but sometimes after a day on the slopes, it’s nice to relax in the comfort of your own home. Here are some of our favorite ways to enjoy Après in your slippers this spring.
Après isn’t just about the drinks. You can easily pull together a selection of snacks and make your own Grazing Board with just a few ingredients. If you don’t know where to start, just pick one from each of the following categories: cheese, meat, cracker, and fruit. Once you have your basics, add on some extras like fancy nuts, pickled veggies, or herb garnish and voilà – you have a charcuterie board. Have fun with mixing flavors and textures, and display your spread on a large platter or cutting board.
The hardest part about a cocktail party is making drinks to order. Save yourself the headache by making one or two large batch cocktails ahead of time – this helps create less clean-up and make sure no one is over-served. Add an outdoor cooler with beer, wine, and sparkling water and let guests help themselves to Happy Hour.
