Candied yams: check!
Family warmth and togetherness: check!
Hungry kids: check!
Waiting for the turkey to finally finish: check!
Old family baggage starting to bubble up to the surface: check!
Well, not that Thanksgiving needs to be about the stresses, as well as the joys, of family. Nonetheless, isn't it nice that Seagrams has put out such a nice spread for Thanksgiving in this circa-1980s tableau, complete with drink options to dull the edge of any family strife that might erupt? Looks like a Thanksgiving to remember! Cheers!

Now, if you look up this drink in virtually any comprehensive recipe book, you'll most likely find a version very similar to this (if not identical to this). Alas, this probably explains why this venerable old drink is consigned to the dustbin of memory. Quite simply, this recipe doesn't make for a very good drink. But, these ingredients seem like they'd match up very well. Good news! They do match up very well, but in slightly different proportions. Here's a recipe that makes this drink sing: This is a drink you can bring to your Thanksgiving feast and wind up being the toast of the party! We suggest that you start practicing mixing this drink right away, and you'll have it mastered by the time Thanksgiving rolls around in less than 3 weeks! Cheers!
