Olives and olive oils complement so many wines, liquors, and cheeses – and Spec’s has a surprising selection of all sorts! These superfoods are super versatile for all kinds of pairings that’ll take your cocktail party to the next level. Here are Spec’s suggestions for some great recipes for these bite-sized flavor bombs.
- Drizzling olive oil over soup adds brightness and depth – try a pepper or truffle-infused olive oil swirled over potato, white bean, or tomato-based soups.
- Bruschetta is a classic for a reason, and Spec’s has all the ingredients you need! Simply toast some bread or grab some sourdough rounds, brush with olive oil, top with sundried tomato and mozzarella, and warm in the oven.
- Olives also work well in combination with all sorts of cheeses, wines, and liquors. An olive medley with Parmesan cheese and Chardonnay is a great appetizer. The crispness of Chardonnay works wonders with salty olives and creamy Parmesan.
- For another awesome appetizer, blue cheese-stuffed green olives – or green olives with a side of blue cheese – are a natural fit with walnuts and sherry. The sweet nuttiness of the sherry and almonds balances out the salty, tangy blue cheese and olives.
Spec’s has everything you need to show your love for olives — from quality olive oils to infusions, great gourmet olives of all kinds, and cheeses, cocktail supplies, and wines!
