NEW FEATURE- Party Tip Tuesday
What's a party without a sweet and stellar beverage, be it just juicy or alcoholic too?
For your holiday gathering this year, Ms. Paperlicious has a timely tip that's sure to spice up your Thanksgiving or Christmas feast... The Signature Cocktail (or beverage)!
To serve your signature drinks and get everyone mixing and mingling, set up a little bar with the ingredients displayed. It can be as easy as a folding table covered with a white table clothe. Draw yourself a little sign with the name of your signature drink, and you are ready to go!
Here's a few ideas we came up with:
The Turkey Lurkey- Spiced Cranberry Juice (with ginger and cinnamon) and if you are so inclined (and over 21, please), add a little vodka. Tastes like a sweet tart sweet heart! Serve chilled in a fancy glass or coat the rim of a straight glass in green sugar granules for added flair. You can serve the non-alcoholic version of this warm too. We think it's delicious.
Frosty Friend- 3 parts club soda or lemon lime, 1 part milk and a one small spoon of vanilla ice cream. Add a little mint extract or Peppermint Schnapps. Shake and pour (slowly or the foam will take over!)
Muddy Reindeer - basically, hot chocolate served in a glass that has been drizzled inside with chocolate syrup. Over 21 version- add a little Baileys or Godiva liquer.
And that's just off the top of our heads! Think about what you are serving for your meal, and play off of those flavors.
We're not talking plain 'ol party punch here. Whatever your holiday theme, you can come up with a fun and feisty drink that will be the talk of the party.
