Our lemon ginger infused apple cider cocktail makes the perfect Thanksgiving cocktail.
This is the first cocktail we’ve shared with you and I’m liking it! It was great fun creating this Thanksgiving cocktail magic at the end of the day for our very own cocktail hour at home. We wanted to bring you a simple cocktail recipe full of flavor with a little Fall kick and this lemon ginger infused apple cider cocktail is it! We even added a pretty lemon and sugar rim to make this drink extra festive.
The search for the perfect Thanksgiving cocktail all started when we decided to host Thanksgiving this year. I have always loved sharing Thanksgiving with family and friends. I have wonderful memories of big dinners, great conversation and lots of delicious food from when I was little in NYC. Thanksgiving in Paris is wonderful too. We love sharing this family tradition of gratitude and love with friends from all different backgrounds. We’ve invited friends over to our home for a (somewhat!) traditional Thanksgiving dinner. For some, it will be their first time celebrating Thanksgiving. For others, they are really happy to share this American holiday in Paris – away from their homes. It’s a really beautiful time to gather, share, feel grateful for all of our many blessings and share culinary traditions.
That is what this lemon ginger infused apple cider cocktail is all about – family, friends, sharing, gratitude, spectacular food and sharing traditions.
We find beauty in every season, in cold weather and warm weather, in anticipating Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring, birthdays… We just love to celebrate in our home! We love to celebrate the every day too – finding a particularly spectacular pumpkin at the market, watching a really good movie and going for a lovely evening walk with our dogs. We have been paticularly lucky this Fall. Between the mild Fall weather, the stunning orange, brown and red leaves all over Paris and the fun foodie events we’ve enjoyed, it’s been a pretty perfect Fall, filled with laughter, joy and great food.
We finished the last square of Chapon chocolate last night with homemade roobios tea. (Remember when we said it was special – read pricey – chocolate and we were going to savor it over time? 2 weeks was “over time”, right?!)
PS. Thanksgiving is all about gratitude and sharing traditions so pllllleeeease tell us yours! We’ve been married a little over 2 years now and we are all about family traditions! How do you celebrate Thanksgiving? Where? How? What do you eat? We want to hear everything.
PPS. The only two times we’ve shared drinks on this blog up until now were when we wrote about our mango banana carrot smoothies (lovingly referred to as our “Buddha Smoothies” in our home) and our yogurt kefir banana lassi smoothies.
