Have you noticed? People are a little bit
nicer, the weather is a whole lot colder, and parking at the malls are
nearly impossible. Oh yes, it’s that wonderful time of year. The
holidays are here again which means giving and receiving presents, finding
an explosion of poinsettias everywhere, and going to parties… perhaps
the best parties all year. There’s something about this season
that magnetically brings people together, even the ones you thought were
lost, to catch up and share some good times.
If you’re hosting a party this month, don’t deprive your
guests from holiday treats that come around only in December. Bring on
the holiday cheer and serve traditional beverages that will warm the
body and spirit. From mulled wine, hot cider, and of course, what is
a holiday party without eggnog? From Christmas to New Year’s, I’ve
listed my top favorite drinks and easy-to-make recipes that will be sure
to light someone’s fire this holiday.
