New Year's Eve with Your Quarancrew

If you're only cooking for your Quarancrew this New Year's Eve... you might as well do so with a bang! Let's start by defining what a "Quarancrew" is and how to host a small get together safely! Your crew should be a small group of friends and family who gets tested regularly and quarantines on days when they are not gathering.  It maybe a group of 3 couples inviting over a neighboring family, but it will be safe fun! 

Now to delicious recipes! As much as we love pigs in a blanket, leave those for when you have to feed more than 4 people! Here are some delicious and special recipes to inspire you to make this NYE a special one!

Cheers with Champagne Cocktails!

We love the variety of bubbly drinks they have put together and we picked our 3 favorites to share with our Silvers.  See the complete list here of cocktails that you can drink whether you're in person with your crew or on Zoom! 

This seasonal Apple Cider Mimosa is ideal for anyone who wants to Cheers by brunch!
