New Year's Cocktail Party

Martha Stewart Living, December/January 1996/1997

Whether you usher in the New Year with the pop of a champagne cork or with a somewhat less ebullient celebration, we'll help you plan the perfect party.

The mood on New Year's Eve is festive and playful, providing the perfect occasion for a lively, diverse menu. Start with colorful, fruity champagne drinks or virgin cocktails, then let your guests choose from a buffet that juxtaposes dishes of Asian and European origin. For dessert, offer creamy rice pudding and miniature panettone, the traditional Italian sweet bread made with raisins and other dried fruit.
