Jennifer is a one in a million stay-at-home mom. (More like one OF a million stay at home moms!) She graduated from a liberal arts college but there is nothing liberal OR artsy about her. She is married to Kevin Fischer of This Just In, and together they have a beautiful young daughter Kyla Audrey. In no particular order she loves dogs, wine, a good bargain, her family, pizza, and entertaining. Follow her blog of all things miscellaneous including but not limited to cooking and baking, entertaining and party planning, being a mommy, and homekeeping.
In an effort to even further streamline my 2013 edition of the Twelve Cookies of Christmas I am offering one beverage-pairing guide at the beginning of the series. I will link back to this blog at the end of every cookie recipe. You can reference what “flavor group” the cookie belongs to, and choose accordingly. I hope this helps! Enjoy!
Nut flavors (Almond, Pistachio, Pecan, etc.)
Caramel Pecan Scone coffee
Brown Butter Pecan Coffee Creamer
At the end of the day, a Pecan Pie Martini
Amaretto Coffee Creamer
And finally, a very simple ‘tini with my favorite brand of amaretto, the DISARONNOtini
Candy Cane Coffee
Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer
And finally for the after 5:00 pm finale, the Peppermint Martini. (Personally I would use VANILLA vodka but that is entirely your choice.)
It’s not as easy to find egg nog tea, but this blend should complement your cookies nicely.
Egg nog syrup from DaVinci Gourmet Syrups.
Eggnog Latte coffee creamer
To toast your guests, the Crystal Cocktail from Sandra Lee.
Chocolate (red velvet) coffee
