If you are hosting an Easter brunch, I think it is safe to say the appetizers are as important as the main course!

I just love all the finger foods at the beginning of a holiday meal.

I even included an infused water to help keep the guest hydrated between wine! The mixture of strawberry, cucumber, citrus and mint make for the most refreshing beverage.

If you run out halfway through the party, just fill it up with additional water the flavors will continue to infuse for days. Happy Spring!!
