These deluxe versions of the brunch standard will give you three good reasons to invite people over. Their toppings—riffs on shrimp cocktail, Caesar salad, and an iceberg wedge—are all appetizer-worthy. Stir up a batch of our go-to mix a day ahead; then, just before friends arrive, set out rimmed glasses, vodka (or not), and skewers of garnishes, so they can pick a stick and snack while they swizzle.
1. Shrimp Cocktail
Rim glasses with a lemon wedge and equal parts kosher salt and Old Bay seasoning. Stack skewers with poached shrimp, a lemon wedge, and pitted Castelvetrano olives. Serve with celery stalks.
2. Caesar Salad
Stack skewers with chunks of Parmesan, half a hard-cooked egg, a small anchovy fillet, and a homemade crouton. Serve with romaine leaves, in glasses rimmed with a lemon wedge, flaky sea salt, and lemon zest.
3. Iceberg Wedge
Rim glasses with a lemon wedge and equal parts kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stack skewers with cherry tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, and a firm, creamy blue cheese; serve with slices of crisp bacon.
