Weekend Project: The Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Cocktail

Make Vanilla Bourbon
So easy. So delicious. Read More »

I’m not a big fan of meals composed of Thanksgiving leftovers (my dad used to literally put all of the scraps of turkey, stuffing, green beans, and mashed potatoes in a blender and serve it as an opaque gray “holiday stew”). When it comes to cocktails, however, I’m all about getting creative with whatever ingredients you have on hand. This particular drink caught my eye because it makes use of a handful of gorgeous fresh cranberries, pairing them with ginger ale and vodka. If you have any green apples left over from pie-making this week, I think a couple thin slices of those would be another great addition. Cheers! [Book Cooker]

Crave: Food & Wine Cocktails 2009

Sometimes, we’ll go out on the town only to spend much of the night pushing our way through piles of people in an attempt to reach the bar. Then, when we finally get the bartender’s attention, we can’t even think of a drink we want him to make. For a change of pace, we’re going to stay at home a little more often and, over the course of the year, test the drink recipes in Food & Wine Cocktails 2009. With concoctions like a five-spice margarita and something called the “Big O” designed by top mixologists, plus party food recipes, we won’t need to leave our apartment to have a good time. Well, except to stock the bar. [$10.17, Amazon]

We’re giving away three copies of Food & Wine Cocktails ’09, but you have to work if you want to know how to make delicious drinks. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, June 5 through Thursday, June 11 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!
