Happy Thanksgiving to all our American readers. Hopefully, you’re all having a great day with your friends and loved ones. Nothing says holiday like a tasty cocktail, right?
Since our previous posts sharing drink recipes proved really popular, I thought I’d share a few more for this festive holiday. Our friends at EFFEN Vodka, JDK & Sons, Cruzan and Basil Hayden’s sent over drink suggestions you might want to serve your guests this holiday weekend. I haven’t tried any of them yet, but the Cruzan® Pilgrim Punch and EFFEN® Cinnamon Fizz sound delicious. Check out all the recipes below and remember to drink responsibly.
Method: In a mixing glass, combine all ingredients over ice. Lightly shake, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with grated nutmeg.
