It’s holiday season which means party time; do you have your Thanksgiving drinks planned?
We have some ideas for you! How about a Pumpkin Martini or a Cherry Manhattan? (Recipes below.) Deb loves her Margaritas with a “Kick”! And we mustn’t forget the homemade Irish Cream Liqueur that Jurga gifts to her friends and family every holiday season.
Having a “signature” cocktail at the gathering is a Gr8 way to start the festivities. Pre-mix a batch of your favorite seasonal cocktail and it is easy to serve your guests as they arrive.
Kyle introduced us to this delightful Pumpkin Martini; tastes just like pumpkin pie…Who is up for drinking their dessert???
Makes 1 Serving
Dip the rim of the glass in caramel!!! YUM!
Multiply the recipe to your desired number and mix in a pitcher. When it’s time to serve, add the ice to the cocktail shaker and shake up a couple servings at a time.
A wonderful, classic cocktail is the Manhattan. This recipe sweetens it up a bit, THE Cherry Manhattan. There is something about the warmth of the bourbon and the sweetness of the vermouth and cherry juice that makes this a perfect holiday drink. Classically the Manhattan is served in a martini glass, however, you can also serve in an old-fashioned glass over ice.
And if you can get your hands on these Chukar Cherries dessert cherries, well, you are in for a treat!
Mix up a pitcher of these and serve as your guests arrive.
This makes 4 servings.
Make the pitcher of cocktails up to 2 hours ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Please remember to drink responsibly.
