Cranberry Sauce Cocktail Recipe

Happy Hour: Cali Mayflower

Call me crazy, but when one's trying to juggle cocktails, appetizers, turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, rolls, and pumpkin pie at the same time, a shortcut or two is definitely in order. When I serve up the usual favorites tomorrow, I'll do so with a twist: expect my guests to (quite literally) savor the meal in their cocktails.

No need to buy extra ingredients for this cocktail; it makes use of what's on hand by calling for cranberry sauce to add sweetness and heft. It's the perfect example of hitting two birds with one stone. That, my fellow cooks, is definitely something to be grateful for.
