Add a touch of honey, ginger and lemon to your upcoming Thanksgiving cocktails!
Thanksgiving is here to ring in the beginning of the holiday season! Let’s welcome this special celebration A Lo Grande by adding a twist to your favorite holiday cocktail recipes and introducing some new ones that we are sure will quickly become new favorites.
According to Buchanan’s mixologist, Ricky Gomez, the 2012 U.S. World Class Bartender of the Year, one way to add a twist to your favorite holiday recipe is by changing the sweetening ingredient. For instance, if your cocktail calls for sugar syrup you can substitute it with some of this season’s hottest flavors such as honey or ginger syrup. You could also add some popular fruits and spices of the season to enhance flavor
