thanksgiving at my parent’s house has always been a collaborative effort. we all get up early and head straight for the kitchen. we’re tasked with making the mashed potatoes, the corn casserole, the cucumber appetizers, and so much more. (thankfully my grandma comes to save the day, arriving with her scrumptious dressing & arms full of homemade pies). this year I got the brilliant idea to have a mimosa bar for our morning festivities. I want it to be holiday appropriate, so I decided to incorporate the best flavors of the season; apple, cranberry, and pomegranate.

obviously, I do not want to add much more work to our already labor-intensive morning. so trust me, this is easy. I picked up a few bottles of champagne, which can also be used for a toast during thanksgiving dinner. I shopped the produce section for red apples, a cranberry, and a pomegranate. then I picked up a bottle of each of those juices. take the seeds out of the pomegranate. clean the cranberry + apples. slice the apples. and you’re mimosa bar is ready!

do you host thanksgiving? do you help prepare the feast? I can assure you an apple mimosa would start the celebration appropriately!
