Who is ready for Thanksgiving next week?

Probably no one. I know I’m not. It always sneaks up on me.

I didn’t even realize that the Friendsgiving I’m going to is only 2 days away! I’m on cocktail duty and want to “wow” them. (Not that I need a recipe, I’m sure I could do that with my charm & good looks alone. Right?) I thought since we’ll all get started cooking together in the morning, maybe we should have mimosas?

Yep. That sounds easy and delicious.

Thanksgiving Mimosa: White Grape, Cranberry. & Thyme

Conventional mimosa ideas were out. I didn’t want orange juice to have any part in this.

I decided to infuse some fall flavor into them using flavors like apple, pear, and grape. I even snuck in a pumpkin ale beermosa for those weirdos who don’t like champagne.

The problem is I have just returned from a long trip to Iceland. I’m super jetlagged, very lazy, and overall just still in vacation mode. I have about 5,000 emails to catch up on as well as unpacking. Even going to the store for champagne sounds way too hard right now. (I’m a lush, I know. That’s just what a decade of West LA will do to you.)

How to solve my champagne problem? Enter Drizly. Haven’t heard of them? Well, you’re going to be amazed. These magical people bring you bottles of champagne, liquor, or beer right to your door. You don’t even have to talk to anyone on the phone to order! Just open the app or website, add the bottles you want to your cart, and the order button! Pretty soon a nice man (or lady) will arrive with your booze. Man, we really are alive in the greatest time.

Here are the four fall mimosa recipes I came up with:
