For a great holiday beverage we can all be thankful for, “The Little Barmaid,” otherwise known as Cydnee Murray, recommends a Stone Rose, what she calls a “tried and true libation” for Thanksgiving. And with its pear-flavored brandy, this is a great cocktail for the entire holiday season.
“It’s one of those drinks that sneaks up on you,” says Murray (www.thelittlebarmaid.com.). “So tasty and so very potent, in the best way.”
