Thinking Fig For Your Holiday Party

December 28th, 2013 BY splendoradmin

Tis the season to show your friends, family and coworkers that you know how to throw a kickass party! Every year it seems like the same old thing – Eggnog, cheese and crackers and small talk. This year you want to do something different and memorable. Anyone can throw a holiday party but if you want to shake things up this year with a unique and delicious theme then it’s time to forget all those old, stale ideas and think fig!

This versatile and delicious fruit is popular among some of the top chefs in the world, and for good reason! Their distinct yet subtle flavor allows them to be used in both sweet and savory dishes as well as a beautiful garnish. Their beautiful color and shape also make them a great option for a festive centerpiece or decoration for your party.

Instead of serving up pigs in a blanket, impress your guests with mouthwatering fig tartlets or fig halves with goat cheese and almond! Roasted figs with prosciutto are always a crowd pleaser. And who wouldn’t love baked brie cheese with fig jelly? Use your imagination and come up with your own unique recipes!

Of course a holiday party isn’t really a party without a proper cocktail and with Figenza fig flavored vodka your job is already half done. Put a twist on your holiday punch recipe and use Figenza in place of unflavored vodka. Or add a little extra flair to your party by serving signature fig cocktails like the Figenza Figtini, Figenza Aphrodisiac or the Figenza Snow White Cosmo. Slice up some fresh figs to use as a distinctive and memorable cocktail garnish.

Of course every good host makes sure that their guests are drinking responsibly. Make sure to have plenty of still or sparkling water available to your guests to drink throughout the evening. When everyone is heading out at the end of the night hand them a goodie bag with a small holiday gift and a fresh fig. And since everyone has already been asking you all night how you made your signature cocktails make sure to include a few cards with the cocktail recipes as well!
