Enjoy the season with friends and share a bottle of Day Owl Rosé. This crisp, fruit-forward California Rosé pairs beautifully with the Pecan-Crusted Goat Cheese + Apple appetizer.
National Rosé Day (June 9th) is coming up, and I’m already planning a night with my best girlfriends. Friends who Rosé together, stay together!
We all love the bright, citrusy flavor of Day Owl, and toast to years of friendship while enjoying light appetizers under the stars. These Pecan-Crust Goat Cheese apps are exactly the dish for a night of sipping Rosé and catching up with friends.
Start by rolling the goat cheese into balls, and lightly rolling on the pecan pieces. Cut a baguette into small slices, drizzle with olive oil, and toast in the oven until golden brown.
Allow to cool, then top with a thin slice of tart green apple. Add the goat cheese & finish off with a light drizzle of honey. YUM.
You’ll love the crunch of the pecans and apple, combined with the smooth, lightly tart flavor of the goat cheese. And everyone loves a crostini! It all feels very casual and summery.
Pecan-Crusted Goat Cheese and Apple Appetizer
The perfect summer appetizer! You'll love this with a glass of wine. Tart goat cheese and crisp green apples on crostini, topped with a drizzle of honey.
- 1 baguette
- 1 green apple thinly sliced
- 6 oz goat cheese divided
- 2 tbsp chopped pecans
- 1 tbsp honey for drizzling
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Slice baguette into 1/2 inch pieces and toast in oven for about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool.
Meanwhile, portion the goat cheese into small balls and roll in chopped pecans. (Chop up whole pecans in food processor if pre-chopped are not available)
Once crostini (baguette) slices have cooled, add one slice of apple to each, as well as a ball of goat cheese.
Drizzle with honey and serve!
They’re perfect for enjoying with Day Owl, a Rosé with a dry, elegant finish. Barbera is the primary varietal in Day Owl Rosé, and this Italian varietal inspires us to seize the day and enjoy every moment with our friends!
Cocktails and appetizers are one of my favorite ways to entertain, and I’ve noticed that Day Owl pairs well with all types of appetizers and dishes. Its fruit-forward flavor complements any sides you choose to serve with it. A chilly glass is just the thing for a hot summer night. And I know I’ll be trying out some fun Rosé cocktails this season! Maybe add some fresh fruit as a garnish or a light splash of seltzer? Sounds like a party to me!
I’d love to know, how do you plan to celebrate National Rosé Day? Pop open a bottle of Day Owl and relax with friends– you’ll love the light, crisp flavor and how it delicious it tastes with all of your favorite party appetizers!
