(NewsUSA) – The holidays are here, and you can be the host with the most by offering guests a truly distinctive and delicious menu to celebrate in style.
A holiday brunch is a great way to relax and reconnect with friends and family, and a menu that adapts easily to large or small groups leaves you more time to spend with your guests.
When planning your holiday party, don’t be afraid to get creative with food and drinks based on your theme. Going snowman? Try snowman pancakes: place two pancakes on a plate with one on top of the other, take a piece of bacon and place it where the pancakes meet for a scarf; chocolate chips, nuts, mini M&Ms, or raisins can serve as eyes, nose, or buttons. Keep it simple, or make it sophisticated.
Don’t want to mess up the kitchen? Slide some mini powdered donuts onto skewers and add chocolate candy hats (mini Reese’s cups?) and licorice scarves for a simple snowman kabob that will delight all ages.
Finally, fill your guests with cheer and serve up Seagram’s Escapes Berry Merry Spritz, made special with the sweet and tangy flavor of Seagram’s Escapes Berry Mimosa.
The directions are simple, no advance planning needed, and a perfect choice for last-minute guests or impromptu holiday celebrations.
