The boys came stomping through the snow (yes, snow) and shouted out excitement that tomorrow is Thanksgiving.

I wholeheartedly agree. I love Thanksgiving. Not just the magnificently tender roast turkey or everyone’s favorite sweet potato casserole or even the ultimate NY style pumpkin cheesecake.

Those are all fantastico, but my fave thing is the simple counting of blessings.

I do the 1000 Gifts thing throughout the year and can’t recommend it more highly. But there’s something miraculous about the bunch of us giving thanks together with purpose. I look forward to this gratefulness gathering with gusto!

If you’re hosting the gathering this season, whether on Thanksgiving or another fall-winter day, here’s a yummy-delish and super simple cocktail you can totally prepare last minute.

I mean, with all the garlic mashed potatoes and flaky apple pie, nobody really has time to tend the bar. With this apple cider sangria, you don’t have to. Whip it up in mere minutes and enjoy. Here’s how…

Mix up fresh apple cider, cognac, and dry white wine or champagne (yum.)

This mixture can be made right before serving or up to a couple hours beforehand. Serve it up in a pitcher, punch bowl, or beverage dispenser, if you’ve got a large-ish crowd.  I like to have sliced apples, cinnamon sticks, and ice on the side for people to garnish as they please.

Enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving!
