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.

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.

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.
In case anyone else is looking for ideas:
1 1/2 oz vodka, 2 oz Cranberry juice, 2 oz club soda 1 oz orange liqueur or OJ - garnish with lime
Apple Pie Martini:
1 oz vodka, 1 oz sour apple schnapps, 1 oz cinnamon schnapps - garnish with apple slice
Equal parts white rum, gin and pineapple juice
2 oz bourbon, 1 oz apricot liqueur, 2 tsp grenadine, 1 tsp lemon juice -
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! : )
Thank you everyone! You are all invited to the party!!
