The time of year for cranberries is here! Thanksgiving is around the corner, and plan on celebrating without a cocktail, don’t you? (Or maybe instead of celebrating, you’ll just be coping with relatives. Either way, a cocktail is in order.) Here are some fabulous cranberry cocktails for your holiday:

1. Grateful Cranberry Cocktail: This fall cranberry cocktail is perfect for Thanksgiving. It’s light enough that it won’t compete with a plate full of turkey and mashed potatoes. But the unique mixture of cranberry, honey, bourbon, green tea and ginger ale is full enough to satisfy the taste buds.

-1 1/2 oz. bourbon
-1 oz. cranberry-honey syrup
-Green tea flavored ginger ale
-Frozen cranberries
-Crushed ice

Fill collins glass three-quarters full with crushed ice and frozen cranberries.  Pour in bourbon and syrup, then top off with ginger ale.

2. Poinsettia Cocktail: This classic champagne cocktail is wonderful for holiday entertaining. Light and refreshing, the Poinsettia Cocktail ads an extra bit of holiday cheer to any gathering.

- Champagne
- 1/2 oz. Cointreau
- 3 oz. Cranberry Juice

Add chilled Cointreau and Cranberry to chilled champagne glass. Stir and top with Champagne just before serving.

3. Pass the Turkey: Make this bourbon creation paired with cranberry, cider, sage and thyme and you won’t be sorry.

- 1.5 oz. Wild Turkey 101
- 2 oz. apple cider
- 1 tbs. cranberry jelly
- 1 sprig fresh sage
- 1 sprig fresh thyme

Muddle sage and thyme with apple cider.  Add ice, top with Wild Turkey and cranberry jelly.  Shake well, strain over ice in a glass rimmed with turkey juice and breadcrumbs.

ENJOY!
