The culture of Tapas has well and truly hit the mainstream. The Spanish way of serving bite-sized appetisers over an evening drink is almost custom-made for Summer gatherings. These cocktail delights balance juicy red tomatoes and watermelon tied together with a sophisticated twist. Served with mint and lightly seasoned to perfection, they’re bound to go down a treat with your guests. Be prepared to make more once they all disappear before your eyes.
