Are you expecting a crowd for your annual holiday party and wondering what to serve?
Have no fear—Scotch-spiked coupes, creamy eggnogs and fragrant punches are here to ensure your party will be one for the record books.
Love eggnog? Try a Tom & Jerry. While both creamy cocktails utilize dark rum and a richly spiced egg batter, the Tom & Jerry is always served hot, and develops a foamy, frothy crown once hot milk is poured over top. Complete your mug with a healthy splash of cognac and a dusting of spices for garnish.
The base of this Toddy is rye whiskey that has been infused with rock candy sugar, sour cherries, cinnamon and a hint of citrus. Combine the flavorful amber liquid with honey syrup, lemon juice and bitters for a dram that will keep you warm all season long.
Pull out all the stops and win party host of the year by preparing this festive Mexican punch. It starts with a flavor-packed base of tamarind, hibiscus flowers and fruit simmered with spices and toasted walnuts. Add to that warm medley a bit of brandy and reposado tequila, and you’ve got a showstopping Christmas stunner on your hands.
