As you mosey around the living room trying to maintain your composure in front of an open bar and platters of delectable finger food, some endearing family member will undoubtedly shove a cup of mulled wine, eggnog, or a chocolate martini into your hand. A few sips later, and you’re seeking out the appetizers and the antipasto. Next thing you know, you’re dipping your fingers into lukewarm cheese fondue because Uncle Jerry selfishly scarfed down the last cube of bread.
