Five Recipes for a Magical New Year’s Eve

It’s almost New Year’s Eve, so it’s time to start planning your menu. What better way to ring in a new year than with magical sweets and treats? Here are some of my favorite things from Rosmerta’s Recipes that are perfect for any New Year’s celebration.


Shepherd’s Pie by Sabrina



What better way to spend a cold winter’s night than by eating a warm, hearty dish? This recipe calls for ground beef, potatoes, corn, tomatoes, butter, milk, and various herbs and spices. I highly recommend digging into this delicious recipe that will fill you up and prepare you for the long night ahead.


Vol-au-vents with Tomato-Feta Filling



Finger foods are an important part of every New Year’s celebration. This vol-au-vents recipe inspired by the food that Mrs. Weasley prepared for Bill’s wedding is a perfect choice. It’s a puff pastry filled with a tomato and feta mixture that will surely impress your friends and family and have everyone going back for seconds.


Chinese Fireballs: Spicy Meatballs



Your guests will love these spicy meatballs, and they are super easy to prepare. This recipe calls for prepackaged meatballs, which will save you some time. The sauce is a blend of barbecue sauce, raspberry jam, liquid smoke, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and Sriracha, which gives it the heat. You can feel free to add as much or as little Sriracha as you’d like. This is definitely going on my New Year’s menu this year.


Fleur’s Flowery French Cocktail

Fleur’s Flowery French Cocktail


When I throw a party or host a gathering, the first thing that I think about is the cocktails I’m going to serve. I plan everything else after I decide what the main drink will be. This elegant cocktail is the perfect central drink choice for your New Year’s celebration. It calls for gin, crème de violette liqueur, lemon juice, sugar, and an egg white. This classy and beautiful concoction is truly worthy of being the star of your night. 


Butterbeer Cider



No magical celebration is complete without butterbeer. This recipe is served hot, which is my personal favorite way to consume butterbeer. It calls for milk, brown sugar, and butterscotch syrup for the drink, and sugar, vanilla extract, heavy cream, and butter flavoring for the foam on top. This sweet beverage will warm you from the inside out and is perfect for a cozy night spent with your close friends and family.
