There is no denying that Thanksgiving is about the food. We all have our favorite dishes. But to me a gathering isn’t complete until someone breaks out a good cocktail. Which is why making this Cranberry Ginger Syrup is definitely on my Thanksgiving to-do list.
I’ve been experimenting with these syrups more and more because well, it’s just about the easiest thing in the world you can do. And maybe the best part of the outcome: if you have kids, making them a homemade soda with a little bit of setlzer and a few tbsp of the syrup is something even the Park Slope mothers can get behind.
But for the adults, this is also a must have. With a little gin or vodka, some seltzer and a wedge of lime, you’ll have yourself a drink perfectly paired for the feast. Or with a little prosecco to start the evening off, something so easy will take you into true entertainer status.
And here’s a thought! For the morning after pancakes (preferably Swedish) or muffins this syrup would be the perfect addition. Although I’ll admit it’s tough to pass on the Aunt Jemima!
