Alchemiq Catering Transforms Events With Its Trendy Appetizers and Cocktails

By Pamela Sosnowski

You can hire a caterer that serves shrimp cocktail and pours wine at your next event. Or you can hire Alchemiq Catering, a NYC-based business that is shattering the mold of what appetizers and cocktails should look like at a catered event. Since 2014 Alchemiq has been stunning clients with inventive hors d'oeuvres and alcoholic creations.

"We are the only catering company to offer trendy hors d'oeuvres accompanied by high-end mixology services," owner and founder Igor Zukowiec said. "There's truly no competition out there that comes close with a bartending service and a cocktail offering. We additionally offer amazing chef stations and elaborate food displays always featuring a trendy design."

The staff takes an artistic approach to how food should be plated and presented. The menu covers all things small bites from tapas and finger foods to desserts, made only with the freshest local and seasonal ingredients. Examples of recent menu items have included mini avocado toasts with serrano, beef negimaki, chicken served in waffle cones, and artichoke hearts topped with a chutney made of pine nuts, parsley, raisins, capers and a citrus zest.

The company's other main offering is its mixology services, where professional mixologists craft unique cocktails made with fresh juices, fruit, herbs, and house-made syrups made on the day of the event. The cocktail list is seasonal and drinks are often finished with a "wow" factor that may include unique colors and special presentation effects. Some of the out-of-the-box concoctions Alchemiq has created include warm mocha martinis, violet mimosas, champagne and maraschino cherry spheres, and perfumed cocktails, made with edible scents.

Zukowiec, a mixologist himself for over a decade, has always had a flair for the creative and worked for several alcohol brands before launching Alchemiq.

"Besides running a premium catering business I'm involved in consulting for restaurants and liquor brands," he said. "I'm also a food stylist specializing in beverages. I've been working on video and photo shoots for many brands including Patron Spirits, Stoli and Lavazza Coffee."

Alchemiq has been hired for cocktail parties, corporate events, wedding receptions, birthdays, and more. The company counts Google, Snapchat, Cosmopolitan magazine and several other corporate brands among its clients. For weddings, the company offers several services including passed appetizers, dessert stations designed by a pastry chef, floral designer, and mixologist, specially designed ice sculptures, and more.

The company provides free quotes and is happy to work closely with a client on designed the ideal menu of food and alcohol preferences to fit an event. To learn more about Alchemiq's offerings or to fill out the online form to receive a quote, visit https://www.alchemiq.com.
