‘Tis the season! I have so many goodies in stock for you this festive month! Yay! From a handmade Holiday gift guide to recipes, I’ve got you all covered so this season will go a little smoother than you think, with no stress involved and a lot of fun! And because the holidays are nothing without food and drinks, let’s start this blog series wiiiiiiith… Drums rolling… the booze!
You might be hosting a party this year or just preparing your holiday meal and want to pair it with good cocktails, I am sure. For the next two weeks, I will be posting a little more than usual, making sure you willet some good, easy, DIY recipes for this season. I am happy to share my favorite (and unique) cocktail recipes (cold and hot!) that you will keep sipping all winter long because they are so delicious! Be prepared to surprise guests and family with more elaborate (and easy I promise) Holiday cocktail recipes that will bring a touch of originality to your party. They are all tested and approved by yours truly (I know, that was a tough blog post to work on…) and can all be prepared in their virgin forms so people who don’t drink alcohol (including kiddos) can enjoy them as well. Oh and they can also all be savored in one evening: cold ones as cocktails before the meal and hot ones as digestives after the meal, sitting by the fire for example… Your choice! Falalalala!
Let’s start with the first one of this series: The Pomegranate and Honey Mulled Wine Recipe!
Very easy and simple recipe for a variation of the traditional mulled wine, using an in-season surprising ingredient: the pomegranate. This warm beverage includes pomegranate juice as well as honey. A beverage of choice that will please the crowds when it is chilly outside!
1 bottle of red wine (not expensive and mild). My personal choice is a red Zinfandel
2 cups of pomegranate juice
4 tablespoon of honey
1 cinnamon stick
1 teaspoon of cloves
Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan and warm up on the stove at low heat. Don’t boil! That’s it! Now go enjoy by the fireplace and let me know what you think in the comments…
