Need some ideas for a special mixed drink for my thanksgiving guests--no egg nog--something with perhaps rum in it though.....any suggestions? Thanks!
How about a "Hot Apple Pie?"
1 quart apple cider
3 to 4 cloves
5 ounces Tuaca
Freshly whipped cream
Dusting of cinnamon
Bring apple cider and cloves just to the boiling point using a medium saucepan. Pour 1 1/4 oz of Tuaca into heat proof glasses (long stem preferred). Using a strainer, pour the cider into the glass leaving about a 1/2 " space at the top of glass. Top with whipped cream and cinnamon.
Makes four servings.
I haven't seen it yet, but I hear that this month's issue of Bon Appetit has a recipe for Cranberry daquiris. If not too sweet, they might be really good.
I happen to love Manhattans in the fall -- I've seen a version made with a spiced crabapple instead of a cherry, and it's good and very holidayish. For something lighter, Audrey Saunders of the Bemelmans Bar in New York has devised a drink that is wine based but very autumnal. A link to the recipe is below.
I like to mix over ice Captain Morgan rum with some good homemade white rice Horchata with fresh cinnamon.
I have a good recipe and easy too. 1 can of oj,1 can of pineapple juice, coconut rum or white rum to your taste, and genadine from the liquior store. mix in gallon jug keeps for weeks.
