I like to start with the right tools to make a delicious cocktail. I use Bartesian. This at home smart cocktail maker allows me to enjoy holiday entertaining more. It makes over 50+ premium cocktails. The fully recyclable capsules contain all of the real juices, bitters, and extracts needed for a perfectly balanced cocktail, with nothing artificial. The quality of ingredients makes all the difference. Simply put in the capsule of the drink you want to make and at the touch of a button you have a margarita or a Cosmopolitan or a Whiskey Sour, or my favorite, the Old Fashioned. They even have holiday favorites like this gorgeous Sugar Plum Fairy. You can choose from 4 drink strength settings to suit any guest. Best of all their Black Friday deal is live now, exclusively at Bartesian.com you can save $100. Tis the season for Bartesian for entertaining or a great holiday gift.
As someone who loves a delicious appetizer, I always choose Pearls Specialties Olives for my holiday recipes, because I can count on the quality. I love these cheese and olive turkeys for some fun on my holiday table and fun to make with the kids. The fabulous flavor of the Pearls Specialties Garlic Stuffed olives, combined with their classic Black Ripe Olives, create the perfect pairing with cheese and crackers or even in my caramelized onion and olive tart. And don't feel limited to Garlic Stuffed olives; Pearls offers a diverse selection of delectable Specialty varieties you can choose from. You could opt for blue cheese stuffed my favorite or even Jalapeno if you like a kick. They all look great on charcuterie boards or in your favorite cocktail! Click here to learn more.
Another quick and easy secret ingredient I like to use at the holidays and year round is whipped feta. And now it comes already whipped. Athenos Whipped Feta Dip & Spread is delicious on a crostini or cracker with a slice of persimmon or roasted grapes or blistered tomatoes or a drizzle of honey, the perfect Holiday Hors D’Oeuvre. Feta is one of my favorites to use since you can sprinkle it, bake it, crumble it, spread it on sandwiches or dip it on veggies. Atheno’s new whipped feta is currently available exclusively at Walmart and it is just so good. Try a baked feta, use it for a pasta sauce or spread it on bread. Click here to learn more.
