I don’t know about you, but my inbox has been full this week. Full of ideas for last minute holiday recipes. I can’t make them all. I don’t want to make them all. However, they look good and perhaps you might be looking for one more idea.
Part of throwing things together successfully, and at the last minute, involves keeping a few ingredients stashed. When you go the store this week pick up a few extra items to keep in your pantry or freezer. Including these great flatbreads, pizza crusts, and more from Astoria. I have a recipe below but they are so versatile and have seriously helped me out in many a pinch. Keep them in my freezer even have gluten free and vegan options.
Last minute holiday cocktail recipe
Besides food, I’ve included a few cocktail recipes if you are entertaining and want something different for the adults. This drink just looks like the holidays doesn’t it? It’s made with D’USSE Cognac. The Red Velvet cocktail calls for 2 parts D”USSE VSOP Cognac, 1 ½ Parts Crème de Cacao, 1/2 Part Simple Syrup, 3 Raspberries, 3 Dashes Chocolate Mole Bitters.
Muddle raspberries and simple syrup in a shaker. Add D’USSE, crème de cacao, bitters, and ice. Shake vigorously and add doble-strain into a chilled Nick &Nora glass.
In addition, if you are still trying to figure out what wines to serve, I’ve got a few ideas for that too. Here are a few last minute holiday recipes that could get you over the hump in the next few days.
