Audrina Patridge has attended her fair share of parties. So naturally, the former Hills star—and only cast member to appear in all six seasons of the beloved MTV reality show—has gleaned some tips on how to properly throw one. "Always have themed cocktails," the newly-minted Kahlúa ambassador tells InStyle. Her holiday drink of choice? This strong, creamy beverage made of the coffee-flavored liqueur, Malibu Black, and almond milk with a taste reminiscent of its name: Milk & Cookies. "On Christmas, all of the girls [read: Lauren Conrad, Lo Bosworth, and, once upon a time, Heidi Montag] would get together and exchange gifts, and there were always milk and cookies involved," she adds. Sounds pretty drama-free to us. Try the recipe out for yourself, below.
