Creating a unique catering experience is a important factor when hosting a cocktail catering event. The right choice of foods needs to not only compliment what people are drinking but also, enhance the party atmosphere, and ensure the guests leave with a lasting impression.

Here’s our guide to the best Canapés for a cocktail catering event

1. Canapés and Finger Foods

Canapés and finger foods are a given for cocktail catering events, because they offer a great variety of small, easy-to-eat bites. Ranging from the classic options like bruschetta and mini sliders to the more sophisticated choices like Smoked salmon, cream cheese and dill mini bagels and Chargrilled haloumi skewers with honey, lime and smoked paprika. The key is to provide a diverse range that caters to different tastes and dietary preferences.
