Fall cocktail

Do you have a signature Thanksgiving cocktail?  If not, you might find some inspiration below.  I love to start off the holiday with a house cocktail offered to each guest as they walk in the door, it’s a nice tradition and sets a festive tone for the rest of the day.  You can do the same one every year and really cement the tradition, or surprise people with a new one every year.

This fun drink can be made in a punchbowl so people can serve themselves.  Be sure to float a few cranberries on top for the true ‘bog’ effect ;)
