My Ultimate Thanksgiving Menu.
Well hey there! Happy Saturday!
I have a special Saturday post! I made us some holiday drinks that I just had to find a place to share, and today was it! These drinks are perfect for that BIG holiday coming up on Thursday or that other BIG holiday coming up in T-minus thirty-three days (ahh, CHRISTMAS!).
I know I don’t usually do drinks, but this year I am so getting into them. I have people coming for Thanksgiving, and TONS of people coming for Christmas. All of these said people REALLY like their holiday drinks, so I figured that now is as good a time as any to start trying my hand at making some fun cocktails. So I’m starting things off simple with this easy Sparkling Pomegranate Punch. It’s basically sparkling pomegranate juice flavored with a little citrus, a little cider and then topped off with champagne. It couldn’t be simpler, which is really good for an amateur like me. If you wanted to also make this drink for kids, just swap the champagne for sparkling water or club soda.
OH, and I added some candied rosemary for a pop of color. It kind of love it!
And that’s all for today, keeping it short and sweet. Have a great weekend!

Hey there! I’m planning to make this for my Christmas party this weekend, but….I’m not sure what this is:
2 ounce bottles apple cider 12, use non-alcoholic if desired
Is it supposed to be 2 x 12 oz. bottles? I’m metric, so I don’t know if 12 oz. would be a standard apple cider bottle?
Silly me. I googled it. Yes, 12 oz = 355 mL which is a standard cider bottle.
So that must be what it is…? 2 12 oz bottles of apple cider?
It is 2 (12 ounce) bottles. So sorry for the confusion. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Happy Holiday’s ? 🙂
Hi, is alcoholic apple cider the same as hard cider like angry orchard brand, or is it more juice?,
Correct, hard cider is angry orchard:) Please let me know if you have any other questions, I hope you love this recipe! xx

I am not sure what orange bitters is, will I find that in the wine section of the grocery store or will I need to go to an alcoholic beverage store??
You have to buy orange bitters from a alcoholic beverage store. If that is tricky for you, you can omit this, but it does add great flavor. Let me know if you have any other questions.
