Don't try this at home. PLEASE.
This time of year our inbox is nothing less than flooded with seasonal food and drink related emails. Usually we prefer to ignore 101 ones with headers like "how to turn your leftovers into panini" and "helpful wine-pairing infographic" but yesterday we got one that was too good not to share with all of you.
When a subject line reads "Cocktails with Thanksgiving Leftovers. Yes, Really!" well, consider our interest piqued. We were not so secretly hoping for something, like, say, stuffing sangria or a gibson garnished with a turkey leg, but the cocktails in said email are equally scary for a couple of reasons. Does anyone really want to drink sweet potato puree? Ugh.
Unless you're fan of Jägermeister and chunky cranberry sauce we're going to suggest not trying these at home.
