Rice Cracker Mix

Our Favorite Cocktail Snacks

For just over $4, we were able to make a giant bowl of cocktail snacks.  Each rice cracker added its own charm.  A touch of sweetness here, a taste of savory there and a nice random bite of spicy pepper.  This super easy mix makes a great cocktail nibble.

This mix pairs beautifully with a vodka martini bar.
