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.
