My mom always says festive drinks are the most important part of Holiday dinners. The reason is that as soon you arrive to a dinner party you are usually welcome with a hot beverage that will set the mood for the whole evening. If the drink makes you feel cozy, your night is up to a great start.
So if you fancy making one mighty sensational first impression on your guests, mix things up a bit:) Instead of serving your hot cocoa or apple cider in regular mugs, serve the cocoa in oranges and the apple cider in apples. You can also go wild and serve hot toddy, hot spiced apple and brandy drink, winter tea, this cocoa with red wine or Christmas mulled wine - that is what I am going to do:)
What do you think? Would you do it? Don’t they look super inviting and festive?
Here is the full hot cocoa oranges how-to and here is the recipe for apple cider cups with homemade apple cider.
P.S: Plus, this potpourri can come in super handy.
P.P.S: Superfood mocktail:)
