MOUNT VERNON — In a few more days, we’ll all be gathering with friends and family to ring in 2018 with delicious foods, hors d’oeuvres and, of course, alcoholic beverages for those over 21 years old! When planning your New Year’s Eve beverage menu, in addition to including champagne, wine and beer, you can’t forget to include a couple fun, themed cocktails that will get your guests in a festive spirit!

I like to combine ginger beer and Fireball Whiskey, which tastes like liquid cinnamon candies, to create a spicy and sassy, yet sparkling and refreshing beverage called Flaming Fireworks, which will be enjoyed by men and women alike.

For those who prefer a sweet and delicate cocktail, why not try this recipe for a New Year’s Kiss cocktail, which harnesses the sweetness of cake vodka, the velvety flavors of coffee liqueur and the richness of cream?
