7 cocktails to get you in the Thanksgiving spirit

Cider Dark n’ Stormy

Did you know that, while wine critics strain to think of pairing for the modern Thanksgiving dinner, the Pilgrims’ drink of choice was cider? Once the national beverage of the US, hard cider was a regular feature on New England dinner tables.

Why not serve a fruity take on the classic Dark n Stormy this holiday season? Developed by mixologist Charlyne Mattox, this drink combines classic Americana with the taste of Autumn for a unique way to kick off thanksgiving celebrations.

To make: Mix 2oz of cider, 2oz rum and 1/4oz of lime juice with plenty of ice. Top with ginger beer and a lime wedge.
