My 2011 Christmas Cocktail Party

I love this time of the year. Everything looks so shiny and beautiful. Everyone seems to be happy even amidst the hustle and bustle of the craziness that is the Christmas festivities.


Every year I like to have family over to just to get together and to simply enjoy the holiday season. The year always seems to go by so fast and everyone is so busy with every day life so it’s nice to stop and enjoy each other’s company over delicious food and drink.


Hubby took care of the bar, as usual and made a mocktail called Santa’s punch. For the adults, he added a splash of cinzano and gin to change it into Santa’s martini.  He had pre made eggnog but jazzed it up with some butterscotch schnapps.  Yum!


Please enjoy the photos of what we ate:
