Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude; it’s a time to reflect on the people and things that enrich our lives; and a time to share our bounty with others.

Whether you celebrate with the family that raised you or your family-of-choice; eat Turkey, Turducken or Tofu-log; host a Friendsgiving potluck or volunteer to serve the needy, a little sparkle goes a long way.

This recipe brings three of the season’s distinct flavors together to create a refreshing drink full of sparkling goodness.
