We love cider. It isn't thanksgiving without cider for me. Nothing goes better with turkey than cider. But opinions may vary. Some people like booze. Me, I like the tryphtophan to make me sleepy, not bourbon

I made a hard cider from some local juice back in July. It probably hasn't mellowed as much as I would like, but I will definitely be bringing a few bottles to dinner next week.

Beer is my favorite for t-day, and this year I'll be having a Dopplebock I made in January or possibly breaking out the reserve Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter I made last thanksgiving.

I've always enjoyed a Nouveau Beaujolais with the Thanksgiving feed. It's usually available by mid-November, and with the vast varieties of food on the table, it comes as close to "going with" the meal as any.

I like a little bourbon with my tryptophan.

BOHICA here.
Homemade Irish Cream

Into a blender add:

1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk

(Use the can as a measure)

1 can 1/2 and 1/2

1 can Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey (or other Irish Whiskey if you can' find Tully. Give every man his Dew!)

1 heaping tablespoon Cafe Vienna instant coffee mix

1 tablespoon chocolate syrup

1 teaspoon butter flavoring

1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend until smooth


Taste again

If there is any left, refrigerate

My daddy serves up eggnog in two pitchers, leaded and un-leaded. I actually find it a bit rich, and stretch it out with some milk when making it on my own. But it's good.


(because of staphylococcus hazards with raw eggs, it’s best to use some prepared liquid egg substitutes. You’ll find them in a carton, like a milk carton, in the dairy cooler or in the freezer section with other breakfast foods.)

For 8 servings:
8 egg yolks (2 to 4 TBSP) egg sub
Beat in slowly:
8 TBSP sugar
500ml cream
250 to 500ml rum, brandy or whisky
a few grains salt
Whip separately until stiff:
8 egg whites

Fold white lightly into other ingredients. Transfer mixture to a punch glass. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg.

Before we my friends and I go out, we usually drink some mix drinks at home…last weekend my friends decided to drink margaritas…but in my opinion it is way to much work to make them, getting all the q, mixing it, cleaning afterwards, totally not worth my time… fortunately one of my friends brought few bottles of The Margarita King…It came out straight from the bottle. It was the best margarita I have ever tasted!!! Tom
