Campari and Cranberry Jello Shots

These deep red jello shots get the grown-up treatment with Campari. It’s likely you know Campari from the trendy Negroni—a mix of Campari, gin, and sweet vermouth, served in an Old Fashioned glass and garnished with a half-wheel of orange. In these festive shots, Campari is mixed with cranberry juice and a bit of sugar to balance out the bitterness. The sweet orange zest rim not only looks sparkly and pretty, but the citrus marries nicely with Campari, too. These are equally as delicious as a pre-party ice-breaker as they are a palate cleanser before dessert.

Malted Frozen Hot Chocolate

Serendipity, a New York City restaurant featured in the romantic comedy of the same name, introduced us to the magic that is frozen hot chocolate. Not for the faint of heart, this supremely chocolatey drink is about equivalent to sipping on a melted chocolate bar—and we're not mad about it. It's frosty and decadent, and tastes just like hot chocolate (only chillier). For a tasty twist, we used malted milk powder to make it even more irresistible (you can find malted milk powder next to other powdered milk mixes in the supermarket). If you'd like, you can substitute unsweetened cocoa powder. We suggest topping the drink with homemade whipped cream and shaved chocolate. Or, pour into shot glasses and serve to a crowd during the holidays.
