Does that mean my meal reservation for a flight on 12/19 will be invalid? I’ll check back Monday to see if options change.

They typically only cater a few hazelnut vodkas, so hopefully they increase the number. I love adding them to my coffee with some baileys.

I take it that the "brand" changes refer to the new wine offerings. @:-)

Catering will indeed be increased. The communication states "10 extra hazelnut espresso vodkas are added to each main cabin beverage cart."

My 12/18 options are Butternut Squash Ravioli and Chicken Breast with Harissa Chicken Jus. I believe these are both new offerings.

That would be double hazelnut espresso vodka - IIRC it's only 50 proof

Honestly, I'd rather just have the Premium class snack AND the main cabin cookie when I'm in Premium class, but I guess I'll take the mint

Well, my point is the menu might get refreshed on Monday, meaning we should check back then if options have changed!

This ravioli and this chicken has been served since early November (and I’m having the chicken as I reply now)

But only on premium long haul routes (BOS/NY/DC). Meanwhile, the competition has been offering complimentary meals on their premium transcon routes, though I realize that doesn't compete with signature water service and holiday mint service.
