I am hosting a cocktail party for some of my DH's company's executives and their wives. We are doing it during Derby week - and I've never hosted a Derby party! (There are two other parties the same week hosted by different executives, it's a tradition in their company). There will be 16 couples.
Are there any traditional foods I should make? I know about the mint juleps, but are there any other cocktails that are a must-have?
I want to make a good impression, I haven't met all of their wives yet. I'd hate to have them think I'm a stupid northerner.
