Last week's holiday punch bowl party was a huge success. Outdoors, chestnuts roasting and marshmallows toasting on the fire pit, indoors, lovely bubbly and amazing cheese platters being enjoyed. All that said, I do happen to have a few confessions. The first being that the chosen punch, White Russians (recipe below), although it looked pretty enough and quite fitting for our white Christmas motif, was not the best choice. Milk based cocktails do best as after dinner drinks. My second confession is that I have no idea who took the photos of the impromptu dance floor. At some point, the volume was turned up and the dance moves were on. The next day I was hurting (getting a bit old for nights like these). If any one else has punch bowl party confessions, do share. Take a peek at the evening's festivities:
5oz milk, 20z vodka, 1oz creme de cacao, .25oz cointreau
mix hard over ice, pour and add a pinch of nutmeg
Best wishes,everyone, for a safe and happy holiday season!
