Photographer, cookbook author and TV host Mary McCartney is joining TODAY to share a few of her favorite easy entertaining recipes just in time for the holidays. She shows us how to make an effervescent raspberry-lime cocktail, bloody mary-inspired party dip with focaccia skewers and festive pistachio and strawberry dark chocolate bark.

These inventive bites turn a classic bloody mary cocktail into a delectable appetizer. They're a refreshing departure from the usual party fare, are so fun to dip and they're vegan-friendly.

Roughly bashed salted pretzels and toasted hazelnuts are stirred into melted chocolate, then decorated with crushed freeze-dried red strawberries and green pistachios for extra color and flavor to complete this delicious, sweet treat.

This is a simple and straightforward cocktail, but it tastes so bright and festive. The sweet raspberry notes and tart lime mingle perfectly on the palate.
