With all of the holidays coming up, you might be considering hosting a party! Hosting a huge party of people might seem daunting but you can tackle it with some help. Taking your guests out to the beautiful rooftop garden for a little entertaining and a scenic view will make them want to come back immediately! You might never get rid of your guests! Here are some tips for throwing the best holiday party.

Yum. You can’t have a holiday party without delicious finger foods. These little stocking pizza bites are holiday appropriate and delicious! Here’s what you’ll need:
  • 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet 
  • ¼ cup pizza sauce
  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese (1 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons torn basil leaves
  1. Heat up your oven to 350°F. Unroll your dough and press it into a 13x8 inch rectangle. 
  2. Using your stocking shaped cookie cutter, cut 12 stocking out of the dough. 
  3. Bake your stockings for 8 minutes.
  4. Spread sauce on each of your stockings, leaving a small sliver of border around the outside. 
  5. Sprinkle some mozzarella cheese at the top of each stocking for your fluffy bit.
  6. Pop them back in the oven for about 5 minutes or until the cheese melts.
  7. Add some basil leaves for a little garnish after you pull them out of the oven.

Signature Sips. If you want to make a party truly memorable, you might want to consider having a signature cocktail at the party. You’ll really impress guests if you can make it off the top of your head without looking at a recipe! We recommend a sparkling apple cider sangria; perfect for the holidays. Here’s what you’ll need to make it happen:
  • 1 750 ml bottle (standard) champagne or prosecco
  • 2 1/2 cups apple cider
  • 1 cup club soda
  • 1/2 cup Disaronno
  • 2 apples, sliced
  • cinnamon sticks, for garnish
For the full concoction you can check out Pizzazzerie’s blog. A signature cocktail at a party will not only make the drink stand out in your guests minds but also the party as a whole. “Hey, remember that party we went to where they had that amazing apple cider sangria? That was a cool party!” Don’t you want people to have that reaction to your party? We thought so.

Take the party to another level with a chocolate fondue station. Melt up some chocolate and lay out some delicious holiday favorites like marshmallows, candy canes, gingerbread men, shortbread cookies and pretzels. Your guests will eat it up, literally!
