Holiday Sweater Party
It's that time of year, the Holidays are upon us and it's a perfect time to celebrate everything! I love throwing a cocktail party at this time of year because everyone is in such a festive mood. Our theme this year was to celebrate classic Holiday Sweaters, or as it always will be, anything that is EXTREME and super festive works too (we had a sexy elf which is always nice!)
Our Menu was....
The items I made...
Goat Cheese Tartlettes with Caramalized Onions & Fig
Spicy Cranberry Cocktail Meatballs
Cocktail-sized Potato Latkes
Peppermint Oreo Truffels
Caramel Rice Krispy Treat Pops
Cheese plate with herbed goat cheese, Tillamook Sharp cheddar, Garlic Jack cheese & fresh mozzerella (Nate's favorite)
Garlic Stuffed green olives, 3 olive tapenade, dry almonds
Veggie plate with some dip :)
On the Beverage front;
Nate made his World Famous Black Out Cider*
and we did the usual bar-stuff; beer (Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale), Crown, Skyy, Jack Daniles, there was Patrone (thanks Brian) and some Bombay, mostly being mixed with club soda and limes. I did a Martini party one year but those glasses are so spilly & messy, we stick with cider parties now...
