So today was Thanksgiving, and my boyfriend and I handled the logistics of the meal for my mom’s family, which is like 20+ people. No small feat, and it was exhausting.
I had been planning to serve this iced for the meal, and in my perfect world everyone would have been clamoring for some and exclaiming over the nuances of cranberry and how well they complimented all the flavors of the dinner….
But I am a realist, and I know most of my family likes soda or beer or wine and so planned just to make enough for me, and my boyfriend, and my mom. It ended up being about a half gallon and we went through it all during dinner, which was perfect. The flavors worked GREAT – so much so that both my mom and boyfriend commented on it.
So, to summarize…this was a Thanksgiving WIN! I suppose I’ll have to make some more to enjoy with all the leftovers…which is fine by me!
