Thanksgiving Thirst Quenchers

Thanksgiving Thirst Quenchers

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, we've taken the heavy burden of trying out some new cocktail recipes for you. We were even considerate enough to include a non-alcoholic drink for those of you who can't partake!

For the boozy:

Apple Cider Rum Punch

We found this first recipe on Bon Appetit and decided to test it out. It was a big hit. A couple of alterations you can make are to swap the lemon juice for orange juice and add a dash of apple juice. If you're not a rum drinker you could also swap in whisky or bourbon.

The original recipe is as follows:

  • 1 cup aged rum

  • 1 cup sweet vermouth

  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice

  • ¼ cup simple syrup

  • 4 dashes Angostura bitters

  • ½ red apple, very thinly sliced, plus more for serving

  • 3 3x1-inch strips orange zest, very thinly sliced, plus more for serving

  • 1 12-ounce bottle dry hard apple cider

Wine Pairing

"The Sage" by Silver Sage is definitely our families long time go to option to pair with turkey. It's a local BC wine so finding it can be a bit tricky but their website has a list of liquor stores you can find it in.

For the not boozy:

Ginger, Cranberry & Lemonade Punch

To be honest this last one was a bit of a concoction we whipped up after spending a good amount of time wandering the aisles at our local grocery store. We were surprisingly happy with the results so here they are:

Mix equal parts

  • non alcoholic ginger beer

  • Cranberry-Lemonade

  • Sparkling Water ( note this is to cut the sweetness so this can be adjusted to your taste)

  • A few dashes of Angostura Bitters

  •  fresh cranberries for pizzaz 

 

Hope you enjoy, and stay tuned for more holiday recipes!
