Greetings from the new Editor of the Cocktails column here at BellaOnline.com!
My name is Michelle Southern, and I'm happy to be your new "hostess with
the mostest" and writing articles about all things cocktail. I've changed
the format for this site's column. Cocktails (and mocktails and other
social beverages) are more than just drinkables... they are an *attitude*.
So each article will include at least one recipe along with its
description, the glass to use, accessories (such as toppings or stir-ins),
a theme, suggested atmosphere, related articles, and more. I hope you
enjoy the new tidbits I've included, and have some fun each time you
I've just added two new articles to the site: The first is a traditional
Egg Nog recipe, and the second is a martini for chocolate lovers.
*** Traditional Holiday Egg Nog
Here's a fabulous recipe for a traditional egg nog that will have your
guests impressed with your cocktail talent. Serve it after carolling or
decorating the tree!
*** Indulge in a Chocolate Martini
The Chocolate Martini is an excellent drink for anyone who is even mildly
enamoured with chocolate. My favourite is the clear version with shaved
chocolate on top, but I've included the creamier recipe as well as other
tasty tidbit toppings.
I welcome your feedback, comments, and suggestions for future articles.
I'm working on starting up a new forum, so that you can interact with
other cocktail enthusiasts or leave questions:
Enjoy your week! :)
Michelle Southern, Cocktails Editor
