Happy holidays! It’s that time of year where there seems to be a get-together or party every weekend. If you don’t want to show up empty-handed, or if you’re the host, impress your company with these easy holiday drinks.
Ingredients (adjust amount based on reader’s serving size)
Not too much to this one. In a pitcher or punch bowl, add all of your fruit. When ready to serve, pour the grape juice and champagne/prosecco over top of the fruit. Serve.
Irish Eggnog Coffee
Brew your cup of coffee and stir in the sugar. Let stand for one to two minutes to slightly cool. Combine with eggnog. Stir in Irish cream and brandy. Garnish with nutmeg, and serve.
Nutella Hot Chocolate
Heat milk in a saucepan on medium-high until it gets warm and starts to steam. Add the Nutella, cocoa powder and sugar, and whisk until it all combines. Bring to a simmer while continuing to stir. Serve with chosen toppings.
Custom, Festive Marshmallow Toppings
You will need:
Do you have your holiday cookie cutters sitting around? Make a festive treat with custom marshmallows. Take the flat marshmallows, and use the cookie cutters to create whatever shapes you want: Santa, tinsel, personal monogrammed letters, snowmen, you name it. Now, plop your custom marshmallows into hot chocolate (or use it for fondue!), and you have a custom twist on an easy dessert.
