Hello everyone, and welcome back to The Selfish Column. I want to say first Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadians. As the weekend festivities begin, many of us look forward to seeing what the dinner table brings. I know I get excited when my social media timeline is filled with all the good, the bad and even the ugly of Thanksgiving dishes. Although food is the main character for this weekend, we can’t downplay the drinks.
Using prosecco-inspired cocktails for your event will allow you to hit two birds with one stone. The great thing about prosecco is that it can be used for dinner and or dessert option. The cocktail created below is simple, affordable, and, more importantly, achievable for the everyday girl. Using cranberries is an excellent idea for a cocktail during Thanksgiving because it’s in season, easy to find, and is a key ingredient to many dishes during this season.
Check out the recipe below to create your own glass of this delicious, light, and crisp cocktail.

As always, thank you for making it this far. Until next time selfish readers.
A special thank you to La Marca for sharing their delicious Prosecco with the Selfish Column.
