Try a classic like a cheese board to go along with your Flat White next to the holiday fire or try something more substantial like grilled steak to go along with The Grinch. No matter what you choose, your friends and family are sure to love these festive food pairings with their Christmas cocktail. Don't forget the desserts! We suggest trying a rich Chocolate Cake with Trick Nog or a sweet Apple Pie and whipped cream with Big Red.
