Party in the Kitchen
It's Thanksgiving morning! We've turned up a swingin' jazz mix, set the table, and have started prepping for pie crust rolling, potato peeling, and drink sipping. The cat gets a tiny splash of cream, G mixes his traditional Bloody Mary recipe, and I sip a tall glass of orange juice, hold the vodka (or I'd be asleep before lunchtime).
For our pre-turkey cocktail later on, we're ditching the planned Cranberry Mojito recipe — a test mix came out face-scrunching sour. (Our Pineapple Mojito was much better.) Instead, we'll be pouring sparkling Kir Royales worthy of the celebration.

Muddy Mint Slide (for the late hours after pie)
|Kir Royale Cocktail Recipe
5 oz. sparkling wine, Cava, or Champagne
Pour Chambord into a tall flute glass, then top with sparkling wine.
Then raise a toast to the chef, the bartender, and your beautiful friends and family! Cheers and happy Thanksgiving.
*Chambord tastes like blackberries, but not overpoweringly so.
CAUTION: Don't drink all day, even if cooking for your family is stressful. You'll get all blurry and uninhibited, then your siblings will stop talking to you because you said something mean that you don't even remember, like "you should fire your hair stylist" or "did you gain some weight?" If you're going to imbibe anyway, drink a tall glass of water in-between cocktails, and be sure to take a nap before dinner.
