Mélangerie hosted the sweetest holiday party and trunk show. It was great to see many of my wedding friends and enjoy some of the flavors of the season.
These savory pretzels were by Sigmund Pretzels.
The gingerbread cupcakes were one of the best cupcakes I have ever had and the frosting reminded me of an inverted Santa hat. Do the cupcakes look familiar? They were created by our friend Betsy of Nine Cakes.
Here’s the recipe:
* 15 mint sprigs
* 1 ounce whipping-quality pasteurized egg white, lightly beaten
* 1 cup superfine sugar
* 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from about 6 lemons)
* 2 bottles sparkling Shiraz
* 3 liters club soda
* 11/2 cups St. Germain Elderflower liqueur
Brush mint with egg white. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar, and let dry on a wire rack. Mix lemon juice and remaining sugar in a large punch bowl, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add Shiraz, club soda, and liqueur. Serve with ice, and garnish with sugared mint sprigs.
