Hot and cold

'Tis the season, and Caleb and I are hosting our first Christmas party as a married couple tonight.  I have a cute outfit planned, which I'll post pictures of tomorrow since it will be a late night.

We decided to do a white elephant gift exchange because, let's face it, they're fun!  We asked guests to bring their favorite dessert, and we're providing drinks.

Since winter is fast approaching, we'll be serving traditional hot drinks - hot coco, apple cider, various teas, and coffee (with the option of Kahlua...yum).  However, we also wanted to have some cold options, so we decided to do a couple of pomegranate drinks.  The first is a pomegranate punch.  To make it, I'll use 12 oz. of pomegranate tequila (which we bought on our honeymoon in Cancun), 2 bottles of sparkling white grape juice, frozen pomegranate juice for the ice, and garnish with lemon and lime slices.  Should be good!  We'll also offer pomegranate mimosas because, well, you can't go wrong with champagne.

Tonight should be fun!  What kinds of holiday parties are you attending this year?
