Again, the Ruby Room is going that extra mile to help create our classic cocktails for this meeting. We have two classics in the buffet, and one modern beverage that just fit so well with the theme, we had to include it. Here they are!

According to Wikipedia:
Plymouth gin

On the front of the bottle is the ship, “The Mayflower”, this is because when the Pilgrim Fathers set out for their journey to the new world, bad sea conditions and damage forced them to put into Plymouth harbour for shelter and essential repairs. Local tradition has it that some of them stayed in the Franciscan monastery which later became the distillery.

I ordered some orange bitters for the occasion. I only hope it gets here in time!

    Mayflower Martini
    (1896)

  • 2 jiggers Plymouth Gin
  • 2 jiggers Dry vermouth
  • dash Fee Bros orange bitters
  • Lemon twist

What’s Thanksgiving without the cranberry sauce? The Cape Codder features cranberries heavily. Plus, Cape Cod isn’t all that far from Plymouth Rock.

    Cape Codder

  • Ice (enough to fill a highball glass)
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 2 ounces cranberry juice
  • 1 lime wedge (for garnish)

And finally, our new guy. It’s all here: turkey, apples, cranberries, spices – basically it’s Autumn in a glass!

    Thanksgiving Cocktail

  • 1 1/2 oz Wild Turkey bourbon whiskey
  • 1/2 oz Applejack brandy
  • 1 tsp Rose’s lime juice
  • 4 oz cranberry juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice and nutmeg

Serve in a martini glass with a spice-sugared rim (mix 1/4 cup sugar with 1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice and nutmeg). Garnish with orange peel.

It’s that time again, ladies! Chill your glasses, don your frocks, and get ready to gather.

The holidays are closing in fast. So we want to get together before we are neck-deep in madness. Let’s do it Sunday, November 18th at our new favorite haunt, the Ruby Room. They are kind enough to open the doors early for us, at 2pm. We love those guys!

The theme, or course, is Thanksgiving. We don’t have a womanly-bent on the subject. But rather, we thought it would be fun if we just chatted about our family’s and friends’ holiday shenanigans. Plus, it would be a cool way to get to know one another a little better.

What about the time the dog stole the turkey? Or when your Uncle Charlie passed out in the mashed potatoes? Do you have a quirky tradition you do every year? Tell us about it! If you have pictures, bring ‘em. It doesn’t necessarily have to be about Thanksgiving either. Any family gathering will do.

We also have some tasty cocktails to sample. We’re bending the rules a little bit (hey, isn’t that what they’re for?), and serving two classics, and one “new classic” – all inspired by those Fall feasts.

Please send us a quick note saying whether you plan on attending or not, so we can save you a seat. Just email lupecphx@yahoo.com. If you have an questions, please feel free to email too.

Cheers!
