Julie Du Pont is back with another amazing recipe for your DIY menu! Since fall and winter are all about creamy goodness and comfort food, a delicious risotto is definitely something to make for your party guests. It’s easy to make, but guests don’t tend to make risotto or themselves….so you get extra points for gourmet flare, and it’s budget-friendly and a fantastic side to serve with so many different kinds of dishes.
Here is the recipe for Parmesan Risotto with Artichokes, from The Weekend Table blog: http://weekendtable.com/2012/12/26/parmesan-risotto-with-artichokes/.

I love these kicky vodka flavors so much, I included Little Black Dress Vodka in my recent roundup of the Best Bridal Party Gifts on BridalGuide! The flavors are fabulous, with just a touch of blueberry pomegranate, black cherry vanilla, and pineapple honey, and the site has some fab recipes that you can use for your pre-wedding parties, the wedding itself, or the after-party! And of course, your bachelorette party gets tasty with recipes like the Black Cherry Latte, Pineapple Honey Mojito, Blueberry Fresh Smash, Blueberry Lemonade and More. Here’s a recipe from their site:
Little Black Dress Fresh Squeeze (220 calories)
1 1/2 oz Little Black Dress Classic Vodka
Splash of Cointreau
3 oz cranberry juice
1/2 oz agave nectar
1/2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
In a shaker filled with ice, add ingredients, roll to mix and pour into a rocks glass. Garnish with a lime twist.
