Tis the season… to whip up some cocktails! Whether you’re throwing a romantic party for two or a magical soiree for the whole neighborhood, today I will be featuring everything you need to make your holiday party a smash. Who’s feeling festive?!
Every cocktail party needs some delicious bites! Personally, I like to mix things up with unique pizza pies at my affairs. And there is nothing more unique than a Honeyed Pear & Black Truffle Cheese pizza to get the holidays off on the right foot. In walks Jus-Rol with the easiest and most delicious pizza dough on the planet. This pre-made dough is not too thick, not too thin, and unrolls to fill a full rectangular baking sheet. Bellesima! Plus with non-GMO, no artificial flavors or colors, no bleached flour, and no high-fructose corn syrup, you can be sure you’re feeding your guests the best. Seriously, just roll out Jus-Rol and top with scrumptious holiday toppings for a ridiculously easy cocktail dish.
What’s a holiday cocktail party without the cocktails?! If you’re not a skilled home mixologist, then Zing Zang Cocktails is just the ticket. Offer your guests a savory and sweet option with these two beauties. The Zing Zang Bloody Mary with Vodka Canned Cocktails is the #1 selling Bloody Mary Ready-to-Drink Can and is perfect for holiday entertaining. Plus, with 9% ABV, it is the equivalent of two cocktails per can so you’re getting quite the bang for your buck. The Zing Zang Mango Margarita with Tequila Canned Cocktail is made with all-natural ingredients, no high fructose corn syrup, artificial dyes or
preservatives. It’s smooth, sweet taste is ideal for a festive soiree. This baby also packs a 9% ABV punch equivalent to two cocktails per can, so deck the halls!

Every holiday party has to feature some killer snacking. That’s where Recipe 33 comes into play. These delicious flavored almonds come without all the additives or mess that ends up all over your guests’ hands. Recipe 33 almonds are made with real ingredients, like the garlic dill with actual garlic chips and dried dill, lemon rosemary with lemon wedges and sprigs of rosemary, and even the cinnamon vanilla has cinnamon sticks and dried vanilla bean pods inside the packaging. The Recipe 33 infused almonds featured at my Holiday Cocktail Party are Black Truffle, Smoky Serrano, Garlic Dill, Lemon Rosemary, and Cinnamon Vanilla. Perfect for pairing with a deliciously festive cocktail! Use code “TryRECIPE33” here to save $2.00 on any 4oz bags.
Cocktail parties need exceptionally yummy light bites. One of my favorite things to offer for the hungrier guests are pinwheel sandwiches topped with specialty sauce. My go-to ingredient to make sauces is Dorot Gardens. The herbs and garlic are pre-portioned fresh and frozen that can be stored in the freezer and used all year around. I love how they simply pop out of the tray and require no Chopping, peeling, or mess. So convenient! I love using Dorot Gardens Basil to make a spicy basil sauce to top my pinwheels.
And there you have it! Everything you need to put together a Holiday Cocktail Party! So tell me, what is your favorite drink to mix up this time of year?
