Boozing With Those Thanksgiving Leftovers


After a meal (or for those of us who had two) like yesterday’s, there is only so much one can continue to stuff down without getting bored as each day goes by. So why not find another way to consume those leftovers?! From sweet potatoes to cranberry sauce, Sidney Frank’s in-house mixologist Todd Richman has crafted a few cocktails using your Turkey Day extras and some spirits from your liquor cabinet.
