With the holidays on everyone’s mind, so is entertainment & food! I’m always looking for recipes that WOW without taking hours in the kitchen. Recently smartwater sparkling arrived on the shelves of my Randalls & I just had to grab a few bottles of this fabulous new sparkling water that is vapor distilled and with electrolytes for taste! I thought what else but cheese to pair with it for an amazingly fancy (but oh so easy) appetizer. A baked cranberry brie served with a spread of crackers & smartwater sparkling!
This is such a wonderful pair to impress your guests & elevate an evening! Both smartwater sparkling & a baked brie are show stoppers that will make your guests wonder when you won the lottery & hired a chef 😉 It’s our secret how easy this pairing is. By the way, I found the smartwater sparkling on the very top shelf with the sparkling water in Randalls.
