Hey hey folks, it’s Saturday! Hope your Saturday is treating you right. It’s officially December, and that means it is holiday party central. I’m guessing you have lots of events to attend this month, and whether you’re hosting or just a guest, I’m betting you need new ideas and inspiration for what to take to those events. Well, I’m hoping to help you out with holiday inspired recipes this month.
We bought our first home this spring, and now we have room to finally host something. We’re going big with two events at our house this month! I’m already anxious about it because I want everything to be perfect. The food, the decorations, the house spotless, plenty of ideas to keep things fun, etc. I am assuming this will decide if I’m capable of being a good host or not.
If I survive to host the parties that is… But those two events give me inspiration to get cracking on some holiday inspired blog content. And that is something you can benefit from too. And what better place to start then with a holiday drink to offer guests!
Champagne is a favorite of mine, it says celebration and merriment. It’s popped at all special occasions, and we usually drink champagne at Christmas eve at my mom’s house. Mimosa’s are another favorite thing. How can you go wrong adding something healthy to a vice? Cranberries tend to be in the holiday theme as well. So this combines all of that.
These are just so pretty, and they taste fantastic. I made each glass individually and included a piece of orange peel to garnish it. I squeezed the orange for fresh orange juice for the drinks as well, but it wouldn’t be a big deal to use store bought juice for these. Because it’s okay to keep things simple when you’re hosting. Less stress is best! Because it’s important to be in the moment, and enjoy your guest or family because that’s more important than anything else.
Even as much as I stress the importance of food, and what a center piece of all those big or small moments it is, the people your sharing it with is who is really the most important. Remember that as the holidays wear on you, and you feel yourself giving into the stress and drama the holidays can create. I’ve watched so many people not be able to enjoy to moment, therefore, I don’t want to do that when I’m hosting this year. And I don’t want that for you either.
Easy to make, looks festive, and tastes like holiday cheer. Enjoy these at your holiday parties this season!
