I'm hosting a cocktail hour for my daughter's school; it's a fund-raiser. They pay to attend the event (they go from our cocktail hour to another house for dinner, then to a 3rd house for dessert), and I provide the food & drink. There will be about 25 people. The food should be pretty light as they are going to a real dinner after, and there needs to be drinks. I need some creative suggestions for what to serve. I can do anything at all. I can just have wine & beer, or I can get really creative. I need ideas for the food and the drinks. I'm open to almost anything! It shouldn't be too crazy expensive or difficult though. Thanks in advance!
