In case you woke up this New Year’s Eve morning deciding at the last minute to have a few friends in this evening, or wanting just a quiet celebration on your own or à deux, here’s a few suggestions for some quick and easy nibbles and a cocktail to welcome the new year in style!
Some spiced nuts are always welcome.
Gougères (savoury French cheese puffs) add elegance with ease to any festive gathering.
If you’d like a little something sweet, why not serve this lemon posset in shot glasses with small coffee spoons?
And while I heartily recommend serving a good bubbly at the magical hour of midnight, before that you just might like to enjoy a cocktail like this sophisticated pomegranate cosmopolitan.
No matter how you choose to celebrate the new year, here’s wishing you all the best for 2013! It sounds like a lucky year, don’t you agree? Happy New Year!
