Backyard Picnic Menu

Sliced peameal on flatbread with a sweet and tangy chili sauce is an excellent hand-held snack for a picnic. Make the tomato chili sauce days ahead and broil the peameal bacon all at once if you're cooking for a crowd. These spicy saucy mini sandwiches pair well with a range of slightly sweet cocktails. Here are three to choose from — a rum drink, a vodka cocktail and a tequila drink — to balance the heat. These summery drinks are beautiful to serve but easy to make so they're great for guests and hosts.
