Three festive recipes to have with Christmas drinks

Sweet or savoury, we love a snack when indulging on the festive tipple.

During the festive season, friends and family are stopping by all the time. While it’s easy to keep the fridge stocked up with all the wine and beer you may need when you have unexpected guests, these soon get hungry, especially after a drink of two.

A packet or two of nuts or crisps simply won’t do the trick, so what do we do when we have guests over for drinks? Sweet or savoury (or why not both) there are plenty of ways to put a festive twist on snacks to have with drinks.

Baked Camembert in a festive bread roll wreath

There is nothing quite as comforting as melted cheese, especially if you are meeting friends over a glass (or three) of red wine. Add some freshly baked bread to the mix along with some festive cranberry sauce, all arranged in a pretty Christmas wreath and you have yourself a winner!
