Add A Taste Of The Tropics To Your Holiday Party
(NAPSA) - If a warm-weather getaway isn't in your holiday plans this year, bring the islands to your celebration. Simply add an exotic taste of mangos to your favorite seasonal beverages.
Modern mixologist and Iron Chef Champion Tony Abou-Ganim has created a Tropical Eggnog recipe that blends tradition and distinction to yield an unforgettable holiday treat that everyone can enjoy. Made with or without alcohol, the savory blend of rich eggnog and sweet mangos is one that guests of all ages can enjoy.
To toast in the New Year, sip a delicious Mango Bellini as the ball drops and the confetti flies. Created by Dallas' own Chef Sharon Hage of York Street, this sparkling cocktail elevates typical Champagne, making your toasts to the New Year even more memorable and unique.
For an extra-special presentation, use a holiday cookie cutter to shape mango slices into a festive holiday-themed garnish.
