I’m dropping in today with a quick lil cocktail recipe, for all you stragglers out there.

Before I discovered the great Old Fashioned, I spent a Thanksgiving morning or two looking for good bourbon drinks to make off the cuff, but I never found one that sounded especially good to me. Wellllll, that’s all changed now, thanks to Atlee, who came up with this little number. While an Old Fashioned might still be your go to fall cocktail, this is one for the Moscow Mule and Dark & Stormy drinkers out there, or for those who just need something fresh.

It might require a trip to the grocery store, but it should be a painless one. It’s made with bourbon, though I wouldn’t turn my nose up to rye if that’s what you have.

Chances are you already have apple cider in the house this time of year, but if not, swing by your local market and pick some up, along with some ginger beer. If you’re feeling especially festive, grab a juicy pomegranate, or just a little jar of pomegranate seeds, and you’re set.

Mix together equal parts bourbon and apple cider, pour over ice and float ginger beer on the top. I’ll leave the measurements up to you. Sprinkle some pomegranate seeds in there, and sip on that until dinner’s ready.

For Thanksgiving appetizers, a simple charcuterie is always a good call, maybe with some sage & prosciutto pesto and marinated goat cheese. Popcorn is almost always sitting out before dinner at my house, too. Either way, save some room for the Brussels sprouts and homemade rolls, or whatever your Thanksgiving favorites happen to be. Enjoy your time with family and friends, y’all. Cheers!
