Green Wines & Festive Cocktails For Thanksgiving

Come Party With Me: Vegetarian Thanksgiving — Drinks


For your vegetarian Thanksgiving, think about going green with the wine. A variety of eco-conscious wineries are offering white and red wines made from sustainably-grown, organic grapes.

Ceago Vinegarden has a pure, clean, biodynamic sauvignon blanc for under $20. For a red varietal, pour a potent, powerful zinfandel like Ridge's Lytton Springs ($33).

Don't forget a water, sparkling apple cider, and a signature cocktail. An unexpected and festive cranberry caipairinha will get guests in the mood. For the recipe,
