Holiday Cocktail Party

December 7th, 2015

Who doesn’t love a good holiday cocktail party? It’s the perfect excuse to don something sparkly and pretend to be fancy show your sophisticated side. But as anyone who’s hosted such a fête can attest, what sounds like it should be easier to throw than a dinner party can actually end up being way more stressful when all is said and done. Multiple small bites coming out of the kitchen at once, cocktails being measured and shaken, and a shorter time span (usually 2 hours) can leave any hostess feeling like she wants to crawl under the covers with a gallon of heavily spiked eggnog and Love, Actually on repeat. For any of y’all with parties on the agenda between now and the 25th, I’ve put together an easy breezy menu of bites that can be assembled before guests arrive, along with my favorite holiday punch that’ll let guests help themselves to the booze. Allowing you to attend to more important tasks, like mixing, mingling, and being the social butterfly you are.

    Love these ideas! They look delicious. I thought about you guys when I wrote my post about my holiday guac! My mom and I made it up a few years back. I feel like you’d love it, Camille!
