Easy, Stress-free recipes for a New Years Eve Appetizer and Cocktail Party

I love New Years but I don’t love getting on the road and driving.  So we always host a New Years Eve appetizer party.  Most of our guests are neighbors and anyone driving is offered a bed, a couch or some other accommodation close by.  We don’t want anyone driving.
