Cocktail Recipes to Ring in the New Year With

Are you hosting this New Year’s Eve? I sure am! And while I love the idea of creating delicious appetizers for my guests, it all starts with the perfect cocktail to start the evening. The Winter Whiteout Negroni makes for the perfect welcome drink, while the French 75 is the ideal cocktail at the stroke of midnight. 

Winter Whiteout Negroni

1 part Bombay Sapphire

1 part Martini Bianco

1 part Luxardo Bitter Bianco 

1 cinnamon stick

Method: In a mixing glass, add the Bombay Sapphire, Martini Bianco and Luxardo bitter Bianco. Fill the mixing glass with ice and stir to chill and add dilution. Strain the cocktail into a rocks glass over fresh ice and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
