Hello friends! Are you ready for New Year’s Eve? Are you planning to party or take it slow? Surprisingly, my husband and I are partying this year. And I am pretty pumped about it because for the last few years we have been going to bed at 9 pm on New Year’s Eve.
Today’s post is for those of you, who are in need of last-minute inspiration as to what to make on this special day. Below is a list of my favorite cocktails, appetizers, and desserts that are perfect for your New Year’s Eve celebration.
DELICIOUS & EASY TO MAKE COCKTAILS FOR YOUR NYE PARTY
Whether you liked it frozen or on the rocks, these pineapple margaritas are great for any party, especially if they are accompanied with nachos.
Fan of spicy Mexican food? Then this cilantro infused Spicy Jalapeno Margaritas recipe is for you. This is a 5-minute cocktail recipe that is sweet, salty, and spicy all at the same time.
This vodka cooler has been one of the most popular recipes on Foolproof Living and for a good reason.
Fresh (or frozen) mango and blackberries muddled with fresh mint, mixed in with vodka, and garnished with blackberries. I recommend making extra because believe me, your friends will be asking for seconds.
Are you a fan of Moscow Mule? Then try this Kentucky Mule recipe. This is a great cocktail for Bourbon lovers. Made with only 3 ingredients, it comes together in just a few minutes.
If you love lemon drop martinis, try this version made with raspberries (or any berries you can get your hands on) It is refreshingly delicious and 5 minutes to make.
QUICK AND EASY APPETIZERS FOR YOUR NEW YEAR’S EVE GATHERING:
You can’t have a party without nuts. These spicy candied nuts are naturally sweetened with natural cane sugar and flavored with cinnamon, cumin, red pepper flakes, and ginger.
Whether you serve them as an appetizer or a dessert, these mascarpone filled warm dates are OUT OF THIS WORLD. Top them off with walnuts, pomegranate arils, and a drizzle of honey to make them even more delicious.
You know how when you go to an Italian restaurant they bring dipping oil and bread to the table? This is the recipe for that dipping oil.
I serve it with my olive bread and people go crazy for it.
If you are serving friends who are health-conscious, these vegan nachos are what you should serve them.
Backed pita chips (instead of fried corn chips) topped off with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and chickpeas and drizzled with homemade herbed tahini dressing is SO good.
If vegan nachos are not for you, then you should try these sheet pan chicken nachos. Made by layering tortilla chips with cheese, shredded chicken, black beans, and tomatoes, these nachos will get everyone around the table.
The easiest appetizer that you can put together in no time. Simply slice apples thinly, spread each slice with blue (or cream) cheese, sprinkle with chives and pomegranate arils.
Herbed goat cheese rolled in crackers and baked in the oven for a crunchy outside and soft inside. Be sure to have some extras, because I know for a fact that these will be the first one to go on your NYE buffet.
These no mayo avocado deviled eggs are the perfect finger food for any party. Flavored with capers, jalapeños, and cilantro they are easy to make.
A combination of goat cheese, cream cheese, and parmesan cheese whipped with olive oil and baked in the oven for perfection. Serve warm with crackers, veggies, or fruits. So GOOD!
