One Cocktail & One Mocktail


Happy Monday!

It is crunch time with your Thanksgiving menu planning and shopping.  Are you ready?

Do you like to offer a signature drink with your meal or is it a free-for-all?

Or, how about brunch and a cocktail?

I have two drinks for you today – a traditional cocktail and custom mocktail.

The Traditional Cocktail:  Bloody Mary

Many people don’t like Bloody Mary’s.  Some, because they just don’t.  Some, because they don’t like the idea – or sound – of it.

I rarely drink alcohol, but a Bloody Mary is one of the few drinks I enjoy. 

And they are perfect for breakfast – or brunch – over the Thanksgiving weekend.

If you don’t have a recipe, try this one.  I think it is the best Smile

Garnish with celery and olives – and enjoy!

 

The Custom Mocktail:  The Turnstyle Twist

This is the sweet to Mary’s spice. 

It has some smooth and some fizz.

Some sugar and some tart.

I don’t have measurements because it can really be mixed to taste, but “picture this…”

Grenadine

 

Cranberry Juice

 

Ginger Ale

Then add 1 TBLSP  cream of coconut.  Any brand will work, but I like to use CoCo Real. 

You can find it on the shelf next to all the other mixers at the grocery store.

Finally, add ice, stir well, and garnish with an orange slice.

This is very festive for the holidays and a perfect beverage for dessert…

…for kids of ALL ages!

 

So, drink up and be Merry.  Or Thankful.  Or both.

Be inspired,
