Do you muddle the turkey? And doesn't the blazing fireplace make mixing difficult as well as melting the ice?



No, you squeeze the turkey then float the carcass on top of the drink with the fireplace on top!!!!

Thanks all for the replies. I'm tempted to go with the muddled turkey, but the Pumpkin Pie cocktail may be a bit more user friendly. Posting it Thursday. Cheers!

Wise guys... Clearly (some) turkeys should be separated from the rum. And PLEASE don't mix fire and alcohol (unless you've got experience with the circus). My fault, I suppose, for not properly distinguishing atmospheric garnish from mixological suggestion.

Ah well..., I'll admit my suggestion was far from sophisticated (unless one actually does experiment with adding meat and burning wood), but don't knock it if you haven't tried it, for it's a cheery blend, and does indeed go quite nicely with a slice of turkey (on a plate) and a cozy fire (in the hearth). Merely an humble notion to muddle over...

Cider and rum do make an excellent holiday drink. And it's a historically accurate drink made with readily available early American ingredients.

I try and get a cider that's complex in flavor, preferably on the slightly tart side. (Always a better chance of hitting both those elements with an unfiltered.) I like to add a little spice, the easiest way to do it is a couple dashes of bitters which doesn't add more sweetness (like syrups or falernum would).

This Thanksgiving friends and I decided to do an actual meal at the last minute (5 PM Thanksgiving Day) so for a holiday themed drink I mixed 2 parts cranberry juice to one part lime-aide (more or less) with a medium bodied rum and a few dashes of orange bitters (to bring out the citrus) and aromatic bitters (to tie it all together with that "What is this?" element). It was really good, 4 of us drank a large pitcher of it.

I highly recommend the Queequeg's Harpoon which was the drink the FOM folks in NE invented for their MS fundraiser that featured the mug from Squid.

I have to 2nd (or 3rd) the notion of the VooDoo Priestess. You can't go wrong with Pumpkin Pie spice. It's the drink of Halloween AND Thanksgiving as far as I'm concerned. Good stuff!

Here are two recipes I like. this is a good way to use your Pimento Dram that has been sitting there looking at you wondering when you're going to use it.

Bermuda Swizzle

1 oz Martinique Rum
1 oz Jamaican Rum
1/2 oz lime juice
1/2 oz grape fruit juice
1/4 oz sugar syrup
1/4 oz Pimento Allspice Dram
1/2 oz Apricot Brandy

Mix and shake with crushed ice. Top extra ice if needed. I will be making this tonight.

Adam's Apple

2 oz. Applejack
1 oz. apple cider
1/2 oz. Pimento Dram yeah!
2 dashes orange bitters

Shake all ingredients with ice, strain into cocktail glass garnish with apple soaked in Brandy. this makes a good after dinner semi sweet drink tastes like apple pie..
