Cheers to another fantastic holiday season! I hope your celebrations were filled with family, friends and fun — and that your glass stayed filled to the top, too. :) As you get ready for the new year, be it by celebrating with a big night out on the town or a cozy night in, make sure to bust out the nice stemware and mix yourself a tasty drink. I like the bright, cheerful colors of classic bloody marys, rosé mimosas and lime margaritas; plus, those reds, greens and golden orange hues are festive and fun. Just be sure to keep some carpet cleaner handy in case you spill :)
Try this recipe for the perfect bloody mary, courtesy Food Network. I’ve never tried a bloody mary with red wine in it, but it could be an interesting mix!
Want a more vividly colored mimosa? Besides using rosé sparkling wine or rosé champagne, try adding a splash of blood orange juice instead of plain old OJ. Follow this simple recipe for blood orange mimosas courtesy Food Network.
I think it’s funny to offer a recipe for a margarita — they’re pretty simple, right? — but after sifting through all the crazy variations on this classic cocktail, I finally decided on Ina Garten’s real margaritas. Vámonos!
What’s going to be your first cocktail of the new year?
