A crisp and fizzy cocktail perfect for any holiday party.
I love to make up fun cocktails for the holidays and Thanksgiving is certainly a day for drinking. I mean, how are you supposed to get all that food in your bell? Of course, get a little buzz so you can’t feel your full ;)
But really I just enjoy making tasty treats that look like and have flavors that match or remind me of the holiday. And this little beverage is no different. I wanted to use sparkling apple cider this year because when we were kids this was our special drink we got on Thanksgiving while all the adults drank wine. Well, I’m a big kid now so I thought a big kid version of sparkling apple cider would be more fun.
I also love using frozen cranberries in drinks, they just look so beautiful. So I figured I’d do a cranberry drink, and added the orange liqueur because the apple and the cranberry were too tart by themselves. I used Triple Sec but Grand Marnier would also work well too. It’s a beautiful and delicious drink that tastes like Thanksgiving in a glass!
