Looking for a cranberry cocktail for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Eve?
The mixologists at Tommy Bahama restaurants created these tasty drinks that.
The cocktail, which they call Happy Huladays, is a refreshing combination of seasonal flavors that tickle the taste buds.
We call it “Happy Holidays,” because most of us won’t be celebrating in the tropics (so don’t rub it in, Tommy!).
The rum-based cocktail is finished with a dash of Prosecco for a sparkling touch.
The cranberry ginger syrup, easy to make, can also be used:
In a Cranberry Martini.
With seltzer for a nonalcoholic drink.
As a sweetener in tea.
You can make it days in advance, and you may want to make a double batch.
