Recipe: Pass the Turkey

Recipe: Pass the Turkey

I love a good Thanksgiving cocktail… but boy are they hard to do right. This one, “Pass the Turkey,” created by Master Sommelier Fred Dexheimer, sounds just about perfect.

Pass the Turkey
1.5 oz. Wild Turkey 101
2 oz. apple cider
1 Tbs cranberry jelly
1 sprig fresh sage
1 sprig fresh thyme

Muddle sage and thyme with apple cider. Add ice, top with Wild Turkey and cranberry jelly. Shake well, strain over ice in a glass rimmed with turkey jus and breadcrumbs.
