And just like that I’m in full on holiday mode. Can’t help it, this time of year makes me so happy! And with Thanksgiving less than two weeks away it’s hard not to be excited. Anyone else feeling the same?

We’ve been having the coziest weather up here in the mountains. It’s inspired me to create recipes that will to warm us up from the inside out. That’s honestly one of the cheesiest things I’ll say, but it’s the truth. I know it’s hard to imagine a drink warming you up, especially one that’s served over ice, but the spices in this wine spritzer do just that.

The key to this fun drink is the cranberry jam/syrup. It’s actually kind of a mix between a jam and syrup. It uses fresh fruit like a jam would, but it’s consistency is much more syrup like. SO, it’s kind of a cross between the two. Whatever you’d like to call it, it’s a delicious mix of sweet honey, fresh tart cranberries, rosemary, and warming cardamon. The honey balances out the tart cranberries, while the rosemary and cardamon add coziness and warmth. Perfect for a Thanksgiving spritzer.

To make the jam, just add all ingredients to a pot. Bring to a boil, boil a minute or two, and done, so simple.

Once the jam has cooled, add it to a pitcher, along with a bottle of your favorite rosé, elderflower liquor (this is my favorite right now), cranberry or pomegranate juice, and a few dashes of orange bitters. Chill the mix, and then just before serving, add fresh citrus slices. I used blood oranges, but regular oranges or grapefruit would be great too. Top it all off with fizzy, spicy, ginger beer (another one of my favorites).

This cocktail is both refreshing and warming, perfect for a chilly November night, or a snow filled Thanksgiving Day…

Complete with cozy blankets, a roaring fire and candles galore. ENJOY!
