Celebrate in style without breaking the bank.
Caviar, lobster, and truffles? That’s so 1999. Still, you want to celebrate making it through the oughts. This hors d’oeuvres menu for sixteen does it in style without going overboard. The five appetizers coax big flavors out of inexpensive ingredients (like caramelized onions) while putting the spotlight on splurge items (like shrimp). To keep your booze budget in check, choose one signature cocktail like these not-too-sweet, not-too-dry rosemary gin fizzes, and round it out as needed with beer and wine.
