Preparing Delicious Holiday Beverages

Preparing Delicious Holiday Beverages

It is time to start the holiday party planning in earnest. Once you have made a guest list, sent out invitations, received RSVPs, and picked out decorations, it is time to start putting together a menu. Food is almost always going to be the start of a party, but great beverages can’t be forgotten. Before we get too carried away planning hor d’oeuvres, appetizers, entrees, and desserts, let’s spend some time focusing on delicious and creative holiday beverages.

Rich and Decadent

There are a few different categories of holiday drinks we will be discussing, but we are going to start off with those that are rich and decadent. When the temperature drops, hot chocolate is always a big hit. You can either make it from scratch, or opt to use a store brand hot chocolate mix. Don’t forget that eggnog as it is synonymous with the holiday season. It’s creamy, buttery, thick flavor is always welcome. For something a little different, white hot chocolate is a creative and enjoyable alternative. Warm apple cider when you are in the mood for something that is warm, refreshing and full of complex, interesting flavors all at the same time.

The Adult Variety

Adult beverages are always a hit during the holiday season. After all, what better time to let loose, relax, and have some fun. Champaign is a classic, elegant drink that goes perfect with the celebratory atmosphere of the holidays. Raise your glasses and have a toast! Of course, many of the traditional holiday favorites such as eggnog and hot chocolate can be spiced up with the addition of a rich alcohol like brandy. Don’t forget wine! A good glass of red wine will go perfectly with a holiday dinner. Really, the varieties are endless. If you have any other ideas, feel free to share them with us on twitter at #papereskimo.
