Also, adding a signature cocktail to the menu is sure to get a raving guest response. Here are some other items you should get for your New Year’s party.
1. Glazed Meat Skewers
Skewers are a favorite for an only-drinks part. They are easy to prepare and consume.
Your guests can easily hold their drinks in one hand and these skewers in the other. Simple ingredients like cherry tomatoes and cubed meat are very nice. After this, they are grilled and ready to serve. Caterers like DJR Catering do amazing spit roasts that can be skewered and served to your guests.
2. Caramelized Onions and Nachos
No party is complete without a plate of nachos. Delicious, caramelized onions thrown on corn tortilla chips with melted cheese- what more could your guests want? Other flavors like lime juice, chopped red chilies, sour cream, and onions complete the mix.
The mixture of the flavors in the topping tastes heavenly against the smoky-tasting nachos.
3. Mini Lobster Rolls
These lobster rolls are sure to give your party a little break from the usual fare. Mix mayonnaise, cayenne, chives, and finely diced celery. Combine them with the fresh lobster for the filling. After that, heat the mini roles are heated and insert the filling into them.
For an aesthetic finish, chop some chives to sprinkle on top.
4. Avocado Fries
Yes, you read that right. If you are skeptical about it, a bite will convince you otherwise. The naturally creamy fruit is mixed in the batter and grilled to make this dish.
Eggs, flour, salt, and paprika go into making the batter. Chunks of avocado are then mixed with tortilla crumbs and grilled over low flame. The result is a crunchy delight that goes well with a bit of hot sauce.
5. Maple-Glazed Sausage Blinis
If you want your New Year’s party to be memorable, it’s time to bring out the guns.
The humble cocktail sausage gets a classy makeover in this canape. After preheating the oven, roast these sausages until golden brown and add the mustard and the trademark maple syrup to give it the glaze. After this, they are cut vertically and placed on warm blinis. A little extra glaze and a sprinkle of finely chopped chives finish the dish. Perfection!
