For the first time in 70,000 years, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fall on the same day. Referred to as “Thanksgivukkah”, November 28th promises to be a holiday of both giblets and gelt. Whether you are celebrating one, the other, or both this year, cocktails are always in order!
The Call Your Mother
2 parts gin
1 part vermouth
A splash of pickle juice
A smattering of maternal guilt
1 kosher dill pickle spear (garnish)
Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Serve with a kosher dill pickle spear. Don’t forget to call your mother. She did give the best years of her life for you, you know.
1 part Cognac
1 part Creme de cacao (dark)
1 part heavy cream
Pumpkin pie spice
Measure, pour, and shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with several dashes of pumpkin spice. Make sure your poor mother doesn’t see that and the schmutter you got on her carpet.
1 part Dr. Brown's Celery Soda
1 part Hendrick's Gin
1 squeeze fresh lemon juice
1 dash celery bitters
Pour ingredients into a chilled champagne flute. Drink several to make it through the holidays with your extended family.
White Wine Schwitzer
1 part dry white wine
1 part cinnamon schnapps
1 part seltzer
Stir together ingredients with ice. Strain into chilled wine glass. Sweat it out like your poor mother when she was having you. Oy.
1 part eggnog
1 part seltzer
Pour eggnog and seltzer together and mix in chocolate syrup with a tall spoon. For the little bubula, and your Uncle Morty after he’s had a few too many and still wants another.
