French Inspired: Appetizers and Cocktails featuring Pinnacle® Original Vodka
Ever since my first visit to France many years ago, I have had a slight obsession with the country. My favorite thing to do was just to visit all of the little shops featuring all of my favorite things. The butcher, the cheese shops, the chocolatier and the bread; we truly loved them all and our goal was to bring back a little France with us. We are partnering with Pinnacle® Vodka to host an elegant French-themed party look. They even sent authentic serving pieces from France, traditional snacks and of course, French vodka. We hope that you find inspiration with this French Inspired: Appetizers and Cocktails featuring Pinnacle Vodka post.

How to Host a Party Like the French
Short of trotting out some French poodles and getting an Eiffel Tower replica, we want to give you an idea of exactly what you need to host a French themed party without going too overboard.
Take it outside.
The French love to immerse themselves in the outside. A party is instantly elevated by the rustic look and feel of the outdoors.
Less is more.
If you look at parties the French throw, you will notice that place settings and tables are never overdone rather they revel in their simplicity. Keep your decor and the items on your table to a minimum.
Serve small bites.
The French love to nibble on hors d’oeuvres. Rather than having a heavy seated dinner, consider a charcuterie board, delicious French cheeses and fresh baguette breads. Add dips, fruit and nuts for a complete table.
Create a signature drink with Pinnacle® Original Vodka.
That is exactly what we did and our drink is amazing if we do say so ourselves. Check out the recipe below.
- 3/4 cup cubed watermelon
- 1 lime
- 1 1/2 parts Pinnacle® Original Vodka
- Take the watermelon and muddle it well with a wedge of lime in a large glass.
- Add about 1/2 teaspoon of honey (or more if you like it sweet).
- Add 1 1/2 parts of Pinnacle® Original Vodka (the big side of jigger).
- Add Ice and shake well.
- Strain, garnish and drink.
