#DOTW: Cranberry Spritzer

Just a few more days until Thanksgiving! It’s one of my favorite holidays. This year the CDC advised not to travel to see your family, and to keep your celebration to one household. That, of course, is painful for some of the larger families, but let’s remember that it’s only this one year, the Covid-19 vaccines are almost here, and we’ve nearly made it through. The upside of this: there’s a good chance that you don’t have to drive, sooooooo drink all you want. You can go from your dinner table straight to your sofa (unless you’re in charge of the dishes). If you need a cocktail recipe for something fitting for the holiday, then look no further. This is delicious!

What you’ll need:

In a blender, combine cranberries, honey and water, blend well. Add ice, 1 1/2 oz of vodka and 2 tbsp of the cranberry mixture to a cocktail shaker, and shake well. Add to a glass filled with ice. Top off with seltzer and stir. Squeeze a bit of fresh lime juice on top. Garnish with cranberries and a slice of lime.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
