This is the cocktail on my Thanksgiving menu this year and I have a feeling my family is going to love it.  Sweet-tart cranberries, ginger syrup and good ol’ Italian prosecco. Cin cin!

Daquiri di Pompelmo_10_27_2016_1

A true daiquiri has very little in common with the saccharine, tropical-fruit-garnished behemoths of spring break bars around the globe.  The real deal gracefully balances rum, citrus and sugar and is NOT frozen.  This one is gussied up with grapefruit and elderflower, and trust me…it’s better than the imitation.
