Check out these dessert inspired drinks that you can add in your arsenal of New Year recipes!
Candy Cane Martini
If you love candy canes, then this martini is perfect for you. The creamy consistency of this martini perfectly balances the minty goodness of the peppermint schnapps and crushed candy cane. What’s more, the recipe is vegan too! First, crush the candy cane until it reaches a dust-like texture. Take the glasses, dip the rims in water or syrup then dip into the crushed candy before setting them aside. Combine almond milk, a small amount of chocolate syrup, and peppermint schnapps in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well then pour in the glasses. Top with a piece of candy cane and enjoy!
No one can have enough cheesecake in their lives. A slice or two is never enough so why not convert this decadent dessert into a drink? Grab a glass then moisten the rim with vanilla ice cream. Dip the glass into crushed graham crackers then put it in the freezer for a few minutes to set. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, vanilla ice cream, vodka, simple syrup, butterscotch schnapps, lemon juice and salt. Beat with a hand mixer or use a food processor to mix the ingredients together. Pour into a shaker with ice, shake well, then pour it in the graham cracker-rimmed glass.
Spicy Apple Pie Cocktail
Apple pie is one of the classy, traditional desserts during the holidays. Turning it into a cocktail will make you appreciate apple pie on a whole new level. All you need to do is combine whiskey, apple juice, sparkling water, and a pinch of cinnamon in an ice-filled shaker. Shake very well then pour the drink into glasses. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and apple slice then enjoy!
Good Food Equals Good Party

These easy New Year recipes will definitely wow your guests and family and make them think you used a lot of time preparing them, when in fact you did not.
