Why You'll Love These Recipes
Christmas is here, and there's no better way to celebrate than with a holly-jolly cocktail! Who's with me?
Each and every festive Christmas cocktail on the list has been personally tested by my friends, family and me and has been met with rave reviews. After all, it's the holidays, and you're busy. You need recipes that have been tried and tested, and you can find that here.
Additionally, you'll find a variety of Christmas cocktails. Need a Christmas margarita? You're covered. Love a boozy eggnog? It's right here. Or maybe you'd love a Nutcracker cocktail for an elegant holiday touch -- I have just the recipe for you.
And, of course, you may also need some food pairing ideas as well. For a main entrée, my Christmas roast duck is perfect, and my holiday pretzel bites with cranberry and Brie make for a great seasonal appetizer. For dessert, try my gingerbread pudding, cranberry-orange cookies and gingerbread ice cream.
