Why not hold a winter alternative to the summer Garden Tea Party? We suggest holding a Hot Drink Party.
Invite your guests to join you in a celebration of winter. A tasty meal option would be a variety of hot soups – think thick tomato, butternut and orange, creamy chicken and corn or sweet-potato – served with plenty of fresh, homemade crispy bread and butter.
After dinner, serve your guests Glühwein – red wine which is heated and spiced with cinnamon sticks, cloves and sugar. Once your guests’ bellies are full, encourage everyone to sit around a crackling fireplace where you’ll serve them a variety of hot drinks. Also, have a selection of cakes and warm muffins as a dessert option. On the menu would be a selection of coffees – cappuccino, moccacino, latté, macchiato and the ever-popular espresso – as well as hot cocoa and warm malt drinks such as Horlicks.
A wonderful addition to this party would be a selection of hot chocolates – from white hot chocolate to mint hot chocolate. Be sure to top each steamy cup off with marshmallows, cinnamon and cream. Remember to have plenty of milk froth on hand, too!
Your guests will leave your party satisfied and filled to the brim with these wonderful winter warmers.
