Veggie Cocktail Appetizers


Before we start talking New Years, I want to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas!

Christmas Card 2015 2

You’re invited to your neighbor’s New Years Eve party, but all you really want to do is stay home in your flannel pj’s, eat shrimp cocktail, and watch the ball drop at midnight.

Is that you?

Or are you that person that gets all dressed up in a snazzy outfit and celebrates all night long?

Either way…these “New Years Eve Veggie Cocktail Appetizers” are for you!

New Years Eve Veggie Cocktail

My local Goodwill had millions of real glass mis-matched champagne flutes for sale for .59 cents.  Not a bad deal, so I grabbed some knowing I could use them on New Years Eve.  We are having a couple of our closest friends over for snacks and I think they will get a kick out of these Veggie Cocktails made with ranch dressing & sliced veggies. Maybe even the kiddos will want to eat some veggies for once.

To get them started, you’ll have to clean them up first.  If the stickers don’t come off easily, heat them up with a blow dryer, first.  Just make sure you don’t get water near the blow dryer.

To fill the flutes with dressing, you can pour the dressing into a zippy bag first, then cut off one of the corners to push it out of the bag like frosting.

Then clean & slice your fresh celery, carrots, etc. and stick them in.  The idea is that each glass is an individual serving.  I stuck cucumbers on the rim which looked cute.

If you have wine glass name tags, now would be a great time to use them.  Or you could write up hand written tags that say “Here’s to a healthy New Year!”

    Wow, here in Maine, our Goodwill prices start @ $1 for everything. Prices are outasight! Love your idea; I always love alternate ways to use pretty glasses, i.e., wine glasses for diet Jello!
