New Year’s Eve always feels like a mixture of anticipation and nostalgia, with a sizable dash of bubbly poured alongside. If you’re having friends and family over to celebrate the onset of 2015, you’ll want to keep the eats light and festive. There’s no need for fois gras or caviar, but everyone will appreciate a spread that’s fun to nosh on while you celebrate the optimism that comes with the turn of the calendar’s page.

Shoot us an email or find us on Facebook and Twitter, and tell us what you’ve got planned for the new year.
Warmest regards,

This drink was created specifically for a New Year’s tribute to New York City. New York – a city that is uniquely indescribable and entirely American. I wanted the drink to reflect the city’s originality, sophistication, and diversity. Hence, the American Cocktail features ingredients from lands far from Manhattan’s soil but integral to its heritage: rum from Puerto Rico, Maraschino liqueur from Italy, bitters from Trinidad, and champagne from France (birthplace, after all, of the Statue of Liberty).
