1621

Although this cocktail certainly wasn’t around for the first Thanksgiving in 1621, it’s a nice fall sparkler to toast the occasion. Of course, there’s no reason to wait for Turkey Day to whip it up!

What to buy: Try to find Stirrings blood orange bitters for this drink. If you can’t, go ahead and substitute orange bitters.

Prosecco is a sparkling wine hailing from the Veneto region of Italy and made of the namesake grape. The extra-dry Ruggeri Prosecco di Valdobbiadene works nicely in this cocktail and is affordable enough that you can buy a few bottles. Prosecco is becoming more widely available, but if you can’t find it, go ahead and use a good-quality, extra-dry sparkling wine.

This recipe was featured as part of our Neoslacker Interactive Thanksgiving menu.
