The holidays are upon us and with that comes parties and hosting! I recently had the pleasure of attending the Annual Bonne Maman Holiday Party and as always it was amazing. Great food, fantastic company and delicious drinks!

Listen, I know it can be a stressful time of year and it can also be a bit of a pain if you’re hosting but I have a little something that will help you with that. My girl Jasmine Baker from For The Love of Food has 2 amazing drink recipes that will be sure to win you the hearts of all your guests.

The Bonne Maman Figgy Cockail and The Bonne Maman Cherry Vanilla Soda Mocktail. Both are super easy to make and are out of this world. Check out the recipes below and enjoy!
