Almond Milk Egg Nog:

Califia Farms makes a 50-calorie, delicious alternative to traditional egg nog. We highly recommend mixing this with your favorite bourbon or spiced rum and garnish with a cinnamon stick and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

Ginger and Pear Puree Mimosa:

Add about a teaspoon of ginger and pear puree to your favorite champagne to make the perfect holiday spiced mimosa.

Spiced Wine:

This is a warm treat full of fresh citrus and spices, it’s guaranteed to warm the body and soul. Click here for our favorite recipe!

 

Snacks:

Winter Fruit Salad:

Use fruit that’s in season like pomegranate, pears, mandarin oranges, grapes, passion fruit and kiwi. Slice fruit and toss together for a light, healthy winter snack everyone will enjoy.

Holiday-Spiced Roasted Nuts:

We loved Ina Garten’s Chipotle and Rosemary Roasted Nuts Recipe, using walnuts, pecans, and almonds. This is a definite¬†crowd pleaser! Click here for directions and full recipe.
