Happy Thanksgiving from Buy-Rite Liquors!
Thanksgiving is a very special holiday. We all know the story...in 1621, the Pilgrims, who had arrived at Plymouth only a year before, created a feast for the Native Americans who taught them how to farm, and how to survive, in America. Their gratitude brought together two communities who learned to live together and support each other. The repast lasted for 3 days!
While our holiday is celebrated for only one day, the Thanksgiving table is typically laden with a number of traditional dishes. Of course, beverages that complement the gastronomic delights are an important part of the party. In the Sammy's Selections email sent yesterday, we offer up several excellent wines that pair perfectly with turkey, stuffing, gravy, and roasted veggies.
While I can't be sure, I'm of the mind that pumpkin was a part of the Pilgrims' and the Wampanoags' indulgence. Today I offer up a yummy Pumpkin Martini that would have impressed every one of the original Thanksgiving revelers. Shake up a batch of these to kick off the 'spirit' of the holiday or enjoy it as dessert as you root for your favorite team.
