Thinking ahead: Thanksgiving Cocktails
Searching through some of my favorite foodie sites, I came across the "Thanksgiving cocktail guide" at Food & Wine magazine. Not that you have to wait until late November to try your hand at some of their ideas....but you might want to consider whether one of their warm bourbon-based concoctions, sparkling wine cocktails, after-dinner coffee libations or drinks made by the pitcher could liven up your holiday gathering(s).
For instance, this cranberry spice cocktail combines a little hard cider with a couple of liqueurs, bitters and candied ginger. If you don't have all the ingredients on hand, improvise!
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
