How to Perfectly Pair Sips & Apps

Choosing cocktails and appetizers that pair perfectly together is easier than you may think. For starters, pick flavors and mouthfeels that complement or contrast each other. If you’re going to serve a heavy, cheese pasta dish, go with something that’s light and bubbly like a French 75. Considering something spicier? Then, serve something that will cool you down like a Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri.

5 Great Cocktail & Appetizer Pairings

Still not sure what to serve? Here are a few foolproof ideas that will delight your guests this holiday season.

Cranberry Frose pairs nicely with cured meats and Baked Brie With Apples & Cranberries.

A good Old Fashioned can bring out the sweet and smoky flavors of Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings.

Satisfy any sweet tooth by serving Hot Chocolate and Mini Cinnamon Loaves.

Because it’s so rich, sweet, and creamy, Eggnog highlights the savory and earthy flavors of Stuffed Mushrooms.

Mimosas (or Faux Mimosas!) and Pressure Cooker Egg Cups are a classic pairing that doesn’t go unnoticed.

    Looking for a recipe for stuffing that includes loaf bread to stuff in the Turkey. Never got moms before she passed.

      Good Morning Patty I grew up in the time when my Mom would say this much of what ingredient she was using. When making stuffing always used a loaf of white bread with celery and 4 or 5 eggs, and melted butter and different seasons as parsley, sweet basil of course salt and pepper. All of these seasonings were done in moderation. If you like more spice of course you could add this. To top it off my Mom always tasted it raw. This would be your choice of course. I am sure you have received a lot of different recipes. Good luck. We always loved this.

    I own a LOT of PC – but I cook everything from scratch. The PC recipes have way too many premade prepackaged ingredients,
    If you’re giving out recipes, they should include links to make the premade items from scratch.
