If there’s one thing the holidays are known for, it’s indulgence. Between now and New Year’s, your calendar is packed with festivities and gatherings with friends. Of course, it wouldn’t be the holidays if all this celebrating didn’t involve decadent eats, followed up by a few calorically heavy cocktails.
