Getting ready to ring in 2018 with my 24 favorite winter appetizer and cocktail recipes.
With New Year’s Eve just a few days away, I wanted to share 24 of my very favorite appetizers and cocktails to help ring in the the start of 2018. If there’s one thing every good New Years Eve celebration needs, it’s a few really delicious appetizers and of course…really great drinks.
For Christmas Eve this year, my family and I headed to a party at a friend’s house. Normally, we will do dinner at our house with beef tenderloin and the fixings, but this year we went with something a little different. The party was a potluck and I was asked to bring booze and as many appetizers as possible. As you guys know, I don’t make appetizers often, but whenever I do I always say I need to make more, because um, hello? Appetizers are the BEST.
Thankfully I have plenty of yummy (ahh…and cheesy) appetizers, and even more cocktails in the Half Baked Harvest recipe archive that are screaming, “MAKE ME”. I sifted through them, and below are 24 of my family’s very favorite appetizers and drinks. I made everyone do a vote on Christmas Eve night and these are the recipes that have been deemed “the best of the best”.
Hopefully you can find a few you love that will help you and your family celebrate the start of a New Year!
PS. I hope everyone is enjoying some time off with friends and family! Tomorrow we’ll be talkin’ tacos!
