Two last minute Thanksgiving cocktails

Two last minute Thanksgiving cocktails

You're probably all organised for the great day but just in case, here are a couple of clever ideas for festive cocktails using storecupboard ingredients from mixologist Myles Davies.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Cranberry Sour

50ml bourbon (Myles recommends Buffalo Trace)
25ml freshly squeezed, strained lemon Juice
15ml cinnamon sugar*
1 very fresh small/medium egg white
1 tsp cranberry sauce

Shake all the ingredients together and strain into an ice-filled wine glass.

* If you buy cinnamon sugar it's best to blitz it in a blender or food processor for cocktails to make the consistency finer. Make a batch while you're at it. If you're making your own mix caster sugar in the proportions of 1 - 1 1/2 tsp to 250g/9oz sugar and blitz together as described

NOTE: this recipe contains raw egg

Pilgrims Punch

50ml Plymouth gin
25ml lemon juice
15ml cinnamon sugar (see note above)
1 tsp homemade or shop-bought apple sauce
1 very fresh small/medium egg white

Shake all the ingredients together, and strain into an ice filled highball glass. Top up with Appletise. Garnish with an apple slice and a fine dusting of sieved cinnamon powder.

NOTE: this recipe contains raw egg
