How To Throw A Ladies' Night Holiday Party + Mexican Wedding Cake Cookie Recipe

Mexican Wedding Cake Cookie Recipe

I was asked by Sauza to come up with ideas for hosting a Ladies' Night Holiday Party, incorporating Sauza Sparkling Margarita into the celebration. (Don't twist my arm!)

While the Sauza Sparkling Margarita comes in three flavors (Original Lime, Wild Berry, and Mango Peach) I wanted to use the Original Lime as my inspiration since I like my margaritas on the straight up traditional side, so my dessert of choice... Mexican cake cookies with lime zest!

Winter Sea Breeze Holiday Cocktail Recipe

This is hands down my favorite holiday cocktail to serve. It's bright, bubbly, tangy, and crisp, plus the pomegranate seeds and spring of mint give it a festive Christmas feel. If you're looking for a signature holiday cocktail, I recommend you try this!

I'm so happy to introduce our new baking contributors from across the pond, Rebecca and Rosie, from Honeywell Bakes! I just love having a little British flair on our site. For their first recipe, Rebecca and Rosie are sharing these beautiful jammy dodgers (shortbread cookies filled with jam). Wouldn't they be yummy to serve at Christmas?
