For Thanksgiving this year, I thought it would be cool to create a cocktail that would match my decor. And because I’m me, well, I did just that. The theme? Brandywine, based on the decorative turkey of the same name that I designed my entire Thanksgiving tablescape around (see photo here).
It was a HIT! So much so, that I whipped it up again for my birthday 70s Soiree the following wee. Now, you can try it for yourself!
