Winter Bruschetta Bar


Total Time:



You guys asked for it! The Winter Bruschetta Bar is here just in time for New Years Eve!

There used to be a time when New Years Eve required a sparkly dress, 5 inch heels and a blow out at dry bar – but those days have passed. Rather than go out and spend an inordinate amount of money on a prix-fixe meal, I’d rather host everyone at our place, throw together a winter version of my favorite bruschetta bar, pop open some really great champagne and call it a night. I can’t promise that I’ll make it to midnight, but I can absolutely promise great cheese, great booze, and all sorts of delicious accoutrements!
