Cocktails for an Ugly Sweater Party

Ugly sweater parties are the best of the holidays, a chance to humiliate yourself in the presence of a roomful of humiliated others. The simple truth is, though, get 40 people in an apartment in thick, long-sleeved wool and nylon blends appliquéd with heavy, potholder-like teddy bears and snowmen, things are going to get thirsty pretty fast.

For your party appetizers, you could go with the traditional Christmas food and appetizers. But I would recommend tossing in at least one themed centerpiece for your hor d’ oeuvre table. For example, these ugly sweater Christmas cookies are pretty cute!
