Cranberries are a Thanksgiving staple on tables all across America. But did you know they are also a staple in drinks as well?
Without a doubt, this is the most delicious time of the year. Dinner tables across America will be full of delicious foods and drinks designed to make all of us feel warm, whole, and ultimately ready for one heck of a power nap. My absolute favorite flavor profile this time of year is cranberry, and lucky for me there’s plenty of cranberry cocktails and mocktails out there!
