As I said in the Dec. 1st post from a few days ago, I would repost the rules and recommendations for the Holiday Cocktail Party- 2020 Edition: "we need it more than ever". Please try to get your offerings in by 12/16/20 and I will try to post them the next day......giving everyone time to try the libations in time for Christmas. The rules for this year are as follows:
(Excerpted from Dec. 1st's post) The guidelines are simple: just send me your recommendation(s) for a nice holiday libation along with the recipe and I will post it here along with a link to your blog...if you have one.
Cocktails can be: alcoholic, non-alcoholic, classic, new, original, or whatever! And while a cocktail is technically a mixed drink, this year......due to things I discovered about my readers last year, and due to the desire to share discoveries more broadly, you are also welcome to recommend a straight-up booze you feel is perfect for the occasion, or even an ideal wine or beer. (So instead of being limited to something like a White Negroni, you can offer up a gem of a top shelf tequila or a lush single malt scotch, a malty stout or decadent Cabernet).
I do suggest that offerings be flavor-consistent with the upcoming season rather than just a favorite drink that might be more appropriate on a sunny backyard deck in July though....but I'm not going to exclude any recommendations anyone is kind enough to send in. It's just a suggestion for the overall holiday theme. (Personally I have some new ones I am eager to share!)
If you recall from last year, we even had some daring selfies of the cocktails being provocatively served. While not necessary for the party, enticing exhibitionism will not be discouraged. ;-)
