Want something completely different this year? Let us add some much needed spice with some Chipotle Carrot Salad.
My favorite side dish for Thanksgiving has always been the mashed potatoes. But how about we take this favorite side and boost the vitamins with added pumpkin for Pumpkin Mashed Potatoes. It tastes just as delicious and you do not have to tell anyone that about the health benefits.
Autumn On The Rocks Hard Cider Cocktail – Add some autumn flair to your cocktail hour. This Thanksgiving cocktail combines hard cider but with the anise of Absinthe. Great if the weather is a bit warmer than expected. Pour over ice or just serve chilled.
Cozy Hot Toddy – Sparkling cider, cloves and honey take this hot toddy recipe all the flavors of fall. The addition whisky or apple brandy make it a delicious adult cocktail to be enjoyed before dinner or with your dessert.
Bring some style to the table with the vodka Cynamon Toast. Rim your martini glass with cinnamon-sugar and shake your cinnamon vodka cocktail for a drink that brings the warmth but also an elegance to your party.
Cinnamon Hard Cider – Another cinnamon vodka cocktail but this time with added hard apple cider, lemon and vanilla.
