What could be more fun at the end of a long and exhausting week than to invite your favorite girlfriends over for a gab session? We have 7 easy and delicious snacks and cocktails that are sure to please your pals!

No. 1: Toasted Baguette with Prosciutto Di Parma

First, we have Top Chef star Fabio Viviani’s super easy baguette with prosciutto, which features only five ingredients! Just toast some sliced baguette with olive oil, then layer prosciutto and sun-dried tomatoes on top.

Tip: Slow-roast your own tomatoes instead of buying sun-dried tomatoes. Click to the recipe for details.

No. 2: Graham Elliot’s Curried Almonds

These easy curried almonds are a healthy and satisfying snack, and pair well with great conversation!

No. 3: Guacamole Traditional

We don’t need to sell this one – it’s just a really delicious guacamole that will have your friends begging for the recipe.

No. 4: Grant’s Red Velvet Brownies

How better to turn around a trying week than with Grant’s red velvet brownies, which are both beautiful to look at and delicious.

No. 5: Kara Vogt's Cucumber Lemon-Lime Mint Spritzer

This delicious fizzy drink is alcohol free, but can easily be boosted with a splash of your favorite over-21 beverage, we won’t tell!

No. 6: Josh Capon’s Margarita

If you and your girls are into margs, Josh Capon’s classic recipe will hit the spot.

Tip: In any cocktail that features liquor, quality matters. You don’t want to have to keep adding ingredients to mask the taste of the liquor; instead you want a mellow flavor that will complement the other ingredients.

No 7: The Skinny Fizzy Pink Drink

This delish beverage is perfect for your friends who are looking to cut empty calories. The drink features grapefruit juice, carbonated water, and stevia to sweeten. Though it doesn’t feature alcohol, this is another one you can certainly add a shot of your favorite liquor to.
