    I made these for the “welcome” cocktail at our very small Thanksgiving gathering yesterday. It was outstanding and garnered approval all around! I made two substitutions. I didn’t want to spring for Cointreau, so used Hiram’s Triple Sec instead. Also, since I had them, I put two raspberries in each flute and then poured the drink in, instead of a lemon peel garnish. The raspberries bubbled up to the top and looked just fantastic! I loved that the cocktail was light, refreshing, subtle and a little complex. It’s a winner. Thanks!

      I love to hear you made this for your Thanksgiving and everyone enjoyed it! Great swap with the triple sec and the raspberry additions, I am sure added nice pop of color and flavor. Cheers!
