This episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo” made me realize that I’ve been celebrating Thanksgiving wrong all these years.

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… READ MORE »
