Turkey day cocktail ideas

isadorasmama | Nov 12, 200901:20 PM     23

A couple of American Jews, a Parisian Jew, and a Colombian all walk into a wonderfully scented kitchen. My kitchen, on Thanksgiving. What classic cocktail awaits them? Something fruity or sour, easy to drink that doesn't contain too far flung ingredients that might be hard to obtain without ordering in advance, anything ultra-expensive, or something that will prevent the mixer (me) from tending to food stuff or schmoozing. I'd prefer to stay away from cream based or vodka based recipes as well as Margaritas or Sangria.

I'm going to make some homemade grenadine for Shirley Temple for the kidlets.

Advise, please. Or if you're coming up blank, just tell me what you plan on mixing up.
