This year we decided to liven up the usual Thanksgiving fare with some mixed drinks . . .
Mmm, that cocktail edger was tasty!
Ian had about a dozen drinks. He gave it the thumbs up!
Carson felt the holiday cheer!
Nyah was in heaven!
Aaron was the bartender!
After the appetizers and fancy drinks, none of us were hungry for the feast.
Everyone felt a little toasted after stuffing our faces so . . .
we headed outdoors for a little touch football. Some of us felt like puking, others felt like taking a nap, but we took one for the team and ran off a couple of calories. It was a blast! (Mom and Dad were team captains. I was the last to get chosen. I showed them. TOUCHDOWN!!)
Here's the recipe for that fabulous drink!
Virgin Green-Apple Martini
2 ounces Martinelli’s Sparkling Cider
1/2 ounce Granny Smith apple (chopped)
2 ounces lemon-lime soda
2 dashes cinnamon
1/2 cups crushed ice
Put ingredients in blender, add ice, blend. Pour into martini glass. Garnish with an apple wedge and serve. Makes 1 drink.
