Evening lovelies ♥ Okay so let me just start off with saying that two months is definitely the longest that I have gone without blogging! I am so sorry for going MIA like that, I just had too much going on and I had to cut some of my workload in order to keep my stress levels under control. So much have happened in these past two months, but most importantly, my cookbook is pretty much completely done, I have completed all those freelance jobs that were stressing me out and I went to Bali on a two week holiday to de-stress a bit, which means that I am finally ready to get back to blogging regularly again! I have missed the blog and you guys like crazy and I am so excited to share what I have been up to – so many exciting things to come!

I will explain more about everything in another blogpost, right now I just want to share the recipes for these delicious greek yoghurt dips with you lovelies. They are the perfect summery accompaniment and I am pretty much using them as a side for everything these days, so yum! ♥

Girls’ Night // Cocktail and snack recipes DSC_6490
Sponsored. This post is made in Collaboration with Cointreau.

I have been wanting to do a girls’ night themed blogpost for such a long time, to me there is nothing better than having my girlfriends over for delicious cocktails and good food, so when I was approached about doing a collaboration with Cointreau it seemed like the perfect opportunity to do such a post! Cointreau is a French orange-flavoured liqueur made from 100% natural ingredients, including bitter and sweet orange peel. It is absolutely perfect for fresh, summery and girly drinks!

When my friends and I have a girls’ night we usually end up going out for cocktails (and sometimes dancing) later in the evening, so we like to keep both the food and cocktails quite light and somewhat healthy – haha I just look a whole lot better in a cocktail dress that way! ;) I have put together a couple of my favorite snack and cocktail recipes that are always a big hit – my creamy butter bean dip with chives served with veggie sticks (haha and usually some chips or bread as well), a big fruit platter and fresh and summery Cointreau Fizz cocktails – you can find the recipes below ❤︎
