OH, these all sound good! I would do a cocktail with Prosecco and something autumnal, like cranberries. I will look around and see what I find.

My favorite cocktail is the Aviation, which I like to make with Aviation Gin. Per serving it is 2 oz Gin, 1/2 oz lemon juice, 1/2 oz maraschino liqueur, and 1/4 oz creme de violette.
a delicious food52 alternative is this:

As it's a holiday, sparkling wine might be around right? I don't cocktail much anymore but here's one that goes back to between the wars; the French 75 (named after a French artillery piece). The basics; gin, cointreau, sugar, lime or lemon juice, topped off with sparkling wine.
