This morning on the Today show, InStyle.com contributing editor Katherine Schwarzenegger demonstrated how to make some fabulous foods for your upcoming holiday parties, including the festive holiday mocktail, pictured above (full recipe below). "It smells amazing," she tells Today's Savannah Guthrie, and "you can add alcohol to that if you're over 21," she adds. It's times like this we wish we had drink-a-vision!
Watch Kat's full segment in the video below, where she also shares mom Maria Shriver's easy go-to holiday recipe, plus her dish for folks—like herself!—who are not fans of traditional Thanksgiving food. Plus, be sure to #AskKat for some help with your own lifestyle quandaries on Twitter by tagging @KSchwarzenegger and @InStyle using the hashtag #AskKat, and she may answer it in an upcoming video!
4-5 cups apple juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Garnish: cinnamon sticks and apple slices
1. In a small pot heat the apple juice and spices over low/medium heat. Stir often while the mixture is heating so the spices will blend into the juice.
2. Once it's hot, pour into mugs and garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks.
