Can you BELIEVE it is almost 2019?
This is insanity. I cannot believe it!
Today I’m sharing alllll the snacks and cocktails that you need for the rest of the holiday season. And they are my absolute faves!
So first! A little bit of cocktail news. After yearssss of sharing a cocktail every single Thursday, my brain is officially fried from ideas. I mean, I still have a lot of ideas that sound great, but not enough to share one every single week. You know? At least not at the moment!
In 2019 I won’t be sharing a weekly cocktail, but I will still share the occasional fun and seasonal drink if I have a delish one to share. Otherwise, you can rest easy knowing that I have over 120 cocktails here for every reason and every season! No need to worry.
Now let’s chat NYE parties, okay? Mine will consist of my family at my house. On the couch with blankets and cuddled up. I CAN’T WAIT. But if you have bigger plans, here are some fantastic ideas!
Most importantly, we should all go make rosé gummy bears right this instant.
The ricotta jam jar has been the HIT of 2018 in my family. You can use all homemade ingredients or buy the majority and either way, it turns out DELISH.
My to-die-for hummus trio is perfectly customizable. SO good.
Salted honey lavender nuts, anyone?
This year, I updated my mom’s old-school veggie pizza. Very into this.
And who can say no to crispy carnitas guac?!
Toasted sesame sriracha deviled eggs and surprisingly addictive.
This greek marinated flank steak platter is an amazing app – or dinner!
Champagne caramel popcorn makes me so happy.
Obviously, a cheese board is a must.
A few of my favorite cocktails for the New Year? I’ve gotcha covered!
This winter aperol spritz has been on repeat this year. REPEAT.
I’m ridiculously excited to make orange crushes now that prime citrus season is here!
Kombucha sangria is fantastic too.
And I loooove these pomegranate cider mimosas. Great idea for the end of apple cider season!
Sorbet prosecco floats are always a party fave!
And 3 ingredient espresso martinis? Um, hello. We’re staying up late! We need this!
Pear sangria is pretty.
And blood orange margaritas!? Be still my heart! The best of the best of citrus season is here.
So what is on your menu for the rest of 2018?! How will you be ringing in the new year?
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing my an incredible pulled pork recipe for New Year’s Eve/Day – it might be one of my favorite recipes of the YEAR! It is so, so good.
