Instead of worrying about spilled red wine, offer clean and clear cocktails this holiday for stress-free entertaining.

White cocktails

When stocking a family-friendly bar for Thanksgiving, it is important to offer non-alcoholic cocktails for those too young, or who choose not to imbibe. Offering clear "clean" cocktails also eliminates any worry about spills and stains.

Here are five ideas (each recipe makes one drink) for you to try this holiday season. —Allison Beck

1. Ginger Sidecar

Run an orange slice around the rim of a martini glass, then rotate the glass on a plate of caster sugar to coat the rim.

Add 2-3 slices of fresh ginger, one pinch of fresh orange zest, 2 ounces of brandy, 1 ounce of Cointreau, 2 table spoons of fresh lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of maple syrup and a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake, and then strain into your prepared glass.

2. Vodka Gibson

Add 1 ounce vermouth, 4 ounces of vodka, and a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker. Strain into a chilled martini glass with a cocktail onion as garnish.

3. White Cosmo

Add 1/2 ounce of Cointreau, 1/2 ounce of fresh lime juice, 1 ounce of vodka, 2 ounces of white cranberry juice and handful of ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with lime.

4. St-Germain and Champagne

Pour 1 1/2 ounces of St-Germain and 1 ounce of soda water into a champagne flute, then top with champagne.

5. My Family’s Christmas Bliss Toast

Add 1/4 shot of triple sec and a splash of white cranberry juice to a champagne flute, and then top with champagne.


A Nostalgic Frozen Kahlúa White Russian Cocktail & Holiday Entertaining Tips #KahluaHoliday #PinItToWinIt

Some of the best holiday soirees are intimate get-togethers with a few friends, lots of laughter and some cocktails that might bring the nostalgia factor.

Over the years, I have amassed a few entertaining tips that have proven valuable on more than one occasion. One valuable tip is to plan accordingly and do as much pre-prep as you can so that you can be a guest at your own party. The last thing a guest wants to see is a frazzled host running around like a chicken with their head cut off.

Another sanity saver that I can’t stress enough – do not attempt recipes that you have not test-run before. Serve recipes that you know are tried and trues and will make you feel like a culinary rock star. While we are on this discussion – do not feel bad if not everything is made from scratch. For example- if you aren’t the best baker, pick up some fabulous Italian cookies and pastries from your favorite bakery and serve those to your guests. If time gets away from you and you want to serve store bought appetizers, then go for it. If you want to serve a variety of apps, you can never go wrong with a good cheese plate and some stellar crackers.

Finally – don’t even think about channeling your inner server – remember you are a guest at your own party. What I often do is have everything ready to go, have my first guest to arrive help me get everything out to the tables, serve everything buffet style (even cocktails) and guests help themselves. A stellar musical play list, some laughter and you have yourself a wonderful evening!

A great cocktail to serve at an intimate soiree is this nostalgic Frozen Kahlúa White Russian. White Russians are one of those cocktails that almost everyone knows. However, this Frozen Kahlúa White Russian brings a bit of whimsy to the party. You can whirl it up in batches, serve it in small shot glasses to kick off the evening and everyone will feel like they are enjoying a bit of an adult milkshake.

This cocktail couldn’t be easier to prepare with a few quality ingredients and you are in business with something that kicks a typical frozen cocktail into overdrive. I decided to add a bit of ice cream instead of ice because the last thing you want to do is water down the cocktail. Plus, the added bonus of vanilla flavor is always welcome.
