Sunday Sketches - Pilgrim Cocktails

The Pilgrim Cocktail
Champagne
Cranberry Juice
complete the cocktail by floating
a few cranberries on top
Cheers!

Hello Sunday Sketchers.

My friend, Kary, over at The Farmhouse Kitchen,
one of my favorite blogs, shared her recipe for Pilgrim Cocktails with me...
and I am delighted to share it with you.
It's so simple, and it makes a great cocktail to have when guests arrive on Thanksgiving Day.
So here's a toast, to my Sunday Sketch buddies,
I am so thankful to have met you all this year! This is such a great way to start a Sunday.
Sophia, our creative, thoughtful and always gracious host,
is the author of The Blue Chair Diary, home to Sunday Sketches.
Do pop over and say hello!
You will be thankful, you did!

The cocktail sounds yummy and I love the sketch to go with it. The Turkey is a very lucky fellow to be enjoying the festivities and not being "part" of the offerings.

Your sketch is lovely, looks like they enjoy pilgrim coctail.

I also agree with Marlenes comment :) about turkey and being a part of the offerings..
Happy Sunday

The addition of the rosy cheeks and red cranberries is great. Any champagne cocktail is worth a try!

Very sweet and fun sketch.

Does that turkey realise what day it is??

Another wonderful piece of art that brings a smile to my face.

Lenora said...

Oh yes Happy Thanksgiving next week to you all - we have had ours already! Very cheeky sketch - so whimsical. My kids say, add dried cranberries to your drink for fun and the cranberries will go up and down in the drink (they stop for a moment top and bottom but no worries the flight up and down will continue!)

What a great festive sketch! I'm Canadian so we already had our Thanksgiving but enjoy those cocktails when your washing down your turkey.

So I guess it was a vegetarian dinner or is the turkey just disguised :)
Cute sketch, recipe looks yummy.

A toast to you my friend. I couldn't agree more. I am so grateful to be on this journey with my virtual 'soul sister.' I love the wishbone necklace and the vegan turkey love. Can't wait to see this with your wonderful color-werks.

EVA said...

Wonderful cocktails! I love their rosy cheeks! I guess that wasn't the first of the cocktails?

pinkglitterfae said...

Heather I'm so going to make that cocktail over the holidays! Thanks to you and Kary. Simple is my middle name.

Missy said...

Ha, so cute. I love that turkey.

Jen said...

Mmm, I'm going to try this drink on Thanksgiving!

SaraLynn said...

Oh, how lovely! I like that everything is in black and white, aside from their blushing cheeks and those cranberries. I've always thought that selective use of color works very well.

Tammie said...

What a great idea...pilgrim cocktails. With no tolerance for alcohol one such as myself would have very interesting Thanksgiving dinner! Sketch is adorable. :-)
