Some Cranberries—for Drinking!

RileyAdamsFoodBlogPostpic_thumb_thumb[3]While food gets the top billing for Thanksgiving, I’d like to also give a shout-out to the drinks that help make the holiday special, too.

We rotate the hosting responsibilities for Thanksgiving from year to year. Usually, whoever isn’t hosting brings some new wines to try—and probably a new winter beer for me to try, since I’m a beer fan.

But it’s also fun to try some festive drinks that tie into the holiday. Which is why I’ll focus on cranberries as a drink option today. :)

Because my children always feel left out if they don’t have their own, special, non-alcoholic holiday drink, I’m including a recipe for a cranberry punch, too.

First of all, the loaded stuff— :)

2 oz vodka
4oz cranberry juice
2 oz ginger ale

Mix together and serve over ice.

And now one for anyone who doesn’t want the vodka--

Cranberry Pineapple Punch
1 can (19 oz) unsweetened pineapple chunks (keep the juice)
1 bottle (40 oz) cranberry cocktail
1 L bottle chilled ginger ale

Combine pineapple and cocktail in a punch bowl.

Add ice and gently stir in ginger ale.

Because cranberries aren’t just for eating! :)

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Hope you have a wonderful holiday.
