Well, part of the joy of the holiday is also the pain of gluttony—if we’re lucky! We’ve survived not only a sometimes- difficult relationship with some of our relatives and loved ones (My dear family and loved ones, I wasn’t talking about YOU guys, por supuesto!) , but also a meal, again, if we’re fortunate, composed of a bounty of delicious dishes.
So, what do I recommend for after-Thanksgiving sips, as you perhaps ponder purchases or how to handle leftovers? I say, keep it simple and light—at least for now!
Here’s one suggestion for an after-Thanksgiving drink: a Guava and Champagne cocktail! Super light yet strong enough to stand on it’s own, this sip is one that you will want to add to your holiday entertaining repertoire! Simply mix 1/4 part guava nectar with 3/4 part prosecco or dry sparkling cava, and a squeeze of fresh lime. You can also change this up with mango or passion fruit nectar; both are complemented by the bubbly. (Though for the passion fruit, you won’t need the lime squeeze!) And for the under-21 and/or non-imbibing crowd, substitute club soda for the prosecco!
Would love to hear about your favorites. In the meantime, ¡Buen provecho! Enjoy!
