The cold weather today has started me thinking towards the holidays and what’s going to be on the menu this year. Along with a great Thanksgiving meal, I always serve unique cocktails while the food is cooking to whet their palates.
Now, I never claim to be an expert mixologist – cuisine is my specialty, so when I need a unique cocktail recipe – I generally turn to other sources like the Bartender’s Guide and Supercocktails, just to name a few.
This is a great cocktail recipe to wow your Thanksgiving guests this year. You may have to search a little to get a few of the ingredients, but I promise you it will be worth it!!!!

A brown sugar cube soaked with Angostura and peach bitters1 oz. Archers Peach Schnapps1 oz. Macallan Amber LiqueurTop up with Champagne
Macallan Amber is a maple-syrup-and-pecan-flavored eau de vie with the twist of a whisky finish. If you can’t find Macallan Amber then you can substitute a maple syrup liqueur.
Being of Caribbean decent, you know I am a sucker for anything with Angostura – just gives every cocktail that extra pop it needs!!!
Everyone will be feeling all warm and fuzzy inside after this and family squabbles and tiffs which always seem to come to the forefront when everyone is gathered together will be nonexistent (hopefully) as everyone will be in the forgiving mood!!
