The menu will be sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows and cherries, Stuffing covered in gravy which we’re serving with a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, turkey and all the trimmings with Anchor Liberty ale and Pumpkin Pie. You’re probably all organized for the great day yourselves too but just in case, here are a couple of clever ideas for festive cocktails using store cupboard ingredients.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Cranberry Sour

50ml bourbon (Myles recommends Buffalo Trace)
25ml freshly squeezed, strained lemon Juice
15ml cinnamon sugar*
1 very fresh small/medium egg white
1 tsp cranberry sauce

Shake all the ingredients together and strain into an ice-filled wine glass.

* If you buy cinnamon sugar it’s best to blitz it in a blender or food processor for cocktails to make the consistency finer. Make a batch while you’re at it. If you’re making your own mix caster sugar in the proportions of 1 – 1 1/2 tsp to 250g/9oz sugar and blitz together as described

NOTE: this recipe contains raw egg

Pilgrims Punch
50ml Plymouth gin
25ml lemon juice
15ml cinnamon sugar (see note above)
1 tsp homemade or shop-bought apple sauce
1 very fresh small/medium egg white
Appletise

Shake all the ingredients together, and strain into an ice filled highball glass. Top up with Appletise. Garnish with an apple slice and a fine dusting of sieved cinnamon powder.
