A Cocktail to Give Thanks for

November 21, 2010 at 7:41 am (Drinks)

For many years, I have begun the yearly ritual that Americans have of stuffing themselves on a Thursday afternoon in late November with a pleasant cocktail that has just the right zing to build an appetite for the turkey and the stuffing and the rest.

So, just in time for the annual event this year, I give you the Thanksgiving Cocktail:

  • 1 oz. dry gin
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth
  • 1 oz. apricot brandy
  • a few drops of lemon juice

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Decorate with a cherry.
