This is more like a cranberry cosmo than a Thanksgiving side, but it will make your gatherings of family and friends just as happy. Cranberry juice, lime juice, ginger simple syrup, orange bitters. Pair it with either gin or vodka, and there are lots of local batches to be had – check out Greenhat Gin from NE DC.
Makes 12 drinks. Mix 2 oz of the blend with 2 oz of your favorite gin or vodka for individual drinks, or for a party, you can blend the whole mix with a fifth (750 ml). Pour over ice and serve.
