An easy holiday recipe to wow your guest, WITHOUT cooking!
December 6, 2017
Take it easy this holiday season with offering a wide selection nibbles for your guests without cooking!
Gather cheese, nuts, meats, figs, raisins, dates, grapes, cheese straws and crackers. Line a long counter or table with holiday greenery and place small plates or small bowls on top to hold the snacks (this makes a festive presentation). Add a few small tea lights or votives as well. This is a great time to add some local flavor, if you have local jams, nuts or cheeses that are known to your area, feature those. Pair with a few local wines or a Cranberry Orange Sparkler (see recipe below) and you are all set!!
Cranberry Orange Sparkler
Punch bowl size add equal part cranberry juice and orange juice to 1 bottle of sparkling wine or prosecco. Add frozen cranberries and orange wedges or make a ice ring with them but use one of the juices to freeze not water. Add the sparkling wine right before serving. Garnish with rosemary in each glass.
