2023 Taste of Home - Holiday Cocktail Party Recipe Contest

General Information

It’s officially party season! You’re invited to share your holiday shareables like Buffalo chicken cheese balls, pecan-stuffed mushrooms or creamy shrimp scampi dip. Simple sweets like eggnog blondies, peppermint cannoli and champagne doughnut holes are welcome, too. And what’s a cocktail party without…a cocktail?

We’ll raise a glass to a cardamom gin fizz, tiramisu white Russians and your cozy mulled wine recipe, for sure.

Send your original recipes with 12 or fewer ingredients and we’ll get the party started.

Judging: The winner of the Contest will be determined by judging all qualifying entrants’ submissions based on the following criteria:
– Taste: 25%
– Visual Appeal: 25%
– Creativity: 25%
– Crowd Appeal: 25%

All entries will be judged using the criteria stated above.  In the event of a tie, the highest scoring entry in the Creativity category will be the winner.  All judging will be accomplished by a panel of Taste of Home food experts. Decision of the judges is final and binding on all matters relating to this Contest.
