Hiya loves!

I’m currently downing green tea like they’re $1 well drinks on a Thursday night in college, and trying to kick this plague that has hit me for the SECOND time already this season. A bad track record for the girl who never gets sick. The perks of cooking with kids for a living.

…That is until 5PM hits, and I’ll switch my mug for a stemmed pitcher glass…because everyone knows the saying…”starve a fever, feed a cold..wine until you pass out on the couch to an OxyClean infomercial.”

And I need to boost my immunity so I’ll be in the best shape possible to wrap my old lady hands on my first Thanksgiving turkey in almost 10 years. TA-EN YEARS. That calls for a festive cocktail!

I strongly believe there is both a dirt pie and a sangria for every season. Or at least that’s what I use as an excuse to make them for every occasion.

I’m all for eating seasonally, and look at that, now I’m even drinking seasonally. I’m such a locavore hipster, I ate crab apple jelly before you even knew they were edible.

But no hard feelings. I want everyone to get boozy during the holidays equally as much. Nothing goes together quite like waking up from a turkey coma power nap with a sangria hangover. ‘Tis the season!
