I’m that hostess, yes I am…the first one to throw a holiday party. This year was no exception; I invited guests to come and enjoy Frangelico cocktails and nibbles. Celebrating the holidays and celebrating with friends Italian style is always a good idea in my book. My La Bella Vita party in partnership with Frangelico was such fun to put together. As a girl that loves a theme, this party was a joy to create.
I prepared lovely nibbles, Italian style.
The Menu included:
Cocktails by Empire State South‘s star mixologist Kelly Thorn was an added plus. Her cocktails were amazing. Signature cocktails with garnish suggestions from the one and only Giada Delaurentiis made the evening extra special. Giada, like me, loves everything Italian. Frangelico, a hazelnut liqueur, makes for a great mixer, the recipes spoke for themselves, and guests taste tested and experienced a cocktail demonstration by Kelly. FUN!
The spirit of the holidays enveloped our home like a warm hug. After all, that’s what it’s all about, right? Good friends, good food, delicious drinks, and good company is the definition of a great party. In the next months I will be sharing more recipes from my party, and I hope you try a couple. Please let me know how it goes and make sure to place a few pics in the comments section below. Sharing your parties with my readers is the best way to spread holiday cheer. Happy Holidays and Cheers! xx
