Tomorrow’s New Year’s Eve! We can’t believe how fast the year as gone, and we look forward to an amazing 2016. My husband and I are not big partiers for New Year’s – usually an easy dinner (pizza?), some games with the kids, and some football are as exciting as we get, although we do like to try a special cocktail to ring in the New Year.
So in honor of the coming festivities, here are a couple of our favorite cocktail recipes that we’ve featured in the past, plus a new one. Whatever your scene, and whatever your party, we hope you’ll be safe and take the time to reflect on the past year.
This cocktail is a staple in Peru (and Chile), and one of my favorites!
Mix the first 4 ingredients in a shaker with ice, and shake vigorously for a few minutes. Strain mixture into a highball glass or a martini glass (the foam from the egg whites should be thick on top). Sprinkle a few drops of bitters over the foam.
A cousin of the “Bellini” cocktail, this is a lovely and less alcoholic option for the New Year, as it does not contain hard liquor.
Mix all the ingredients (chilled), and serve in a champagne flute or wine glass.
A favorite of Americans, and of company president Richard Davis in particular, this Mexican cocktail is a perfect blend of sour, sweet, and salty! I usually prefer mine served “up” or “on the rocks,” but this year want to try out my new blender and plan to make them frozen-style.
Chill all the ingredients the day before – the liquors you can mix together and chill in the freezer. Then, put all the ingredients (except garnishes) in a blender and blend on high until smooth. Serve immediately in a salt-rimmed glass with a lime wedge.
