Cool Thanksgiving Drinks

The first Thanksgiving we lived in the South we had just moved into our first house. Katherine excitedly threw on a sweater, popped some baked brie in the oven and lit a fire. The sweater was shed and the brie was enjoyed with iced tea on the back porch. The fire was left to die after we threw every window in the house open. It’s often still in the 70s in November and with the oven on full blast, we often reach for cold drinks on Thanksgiving. Here are some of our favorites:

Fresh Apple Cider (unfermented)

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
