Happy almost New Year! Are you celebrating tonight? We've decided to keep it low-key and close to home. A couple of friends are coming over and we'll be enjoying our customary New Year's Eve feast: all-you-can-eat crab legs and knäckebröd with cheese.
A few weeks ago I asked my friend Christen if she'd help me conjure up toast-worthy cocktails for New Year's Eve. I frequently bake with spirits, but I'm inexperienced when it comes to stirring up mixed drinks. We put our heads together and came up with two winners - Golden Spiced Pear Cocktail and Spiked Chile Hot Chocolate. Both are easy to make, and we even made a fun how-to video.
