Here's my favorite drink to serve so far this fall. It's so easy guests can even mix it themselves! Thanks to Sunset Magazine's 2018 Thanksgiving edition for the inspiration! I took their recipe and added gin and a touch of bitters to deepen the flavor and it's fabulous! I'm hosting 24 family and friends this year and this is what we'll be staring with.
1.5 oz Angelino Amaro
1 oz Indira Gin
4 oz Dry Apple Cider
2-3 drops Cherry Vanilla Bitters by Monarch
Mix amaro and gin and place in a beautiful serving pitcher with a pretty stir spoon like this. Then have the cider on ice near buy. Your guests pour gin/amaro mixture over ice then add cider to taste then top with a few drops of monarch bitter and viola! Pro Tip: make a cute chalkboard sign with the instructions! Have a bowl of oranges and a peeler near by for people to garnish their own. This is a perfect cocktail to start out your Thanksgiving festivities!!! Cheers!
