While we love the big feast so characteristic of the Thanksgiving holiday, we also have a soft spot for the delicious appetizers and cocktails enjoyed leisurely throughout the day while the meal cooks. From savory to sweet, we’ve rounded up our favorite (uncomplicated!) pairings that would also bode well for an intimate cocktail party with close friends as the holidays draw nearer.
This delicious Arugula Pistachio Pesto is a welcome change to the standard basil and garlic recipe. Try it with bread sticks, crostini, or sliced veggies—and wash it down with a refreshing Hibiscus & Ginger Champagne Cocktail! If you don’t happen to have Hibiscus flowers in your pantry, just add a dash of rose syrup (or omit it completely for a simple ginger and champagne drink!).
