While we prepped our food for Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday night we drank these martinis and listened to music. These were the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. Scotty cleaned/played with the turkey while I cut all the veggies and made the pumpkin pie. I had this same drink on Thanksgiving as well except I put switched out the half and half for egg nog. Yum! Happy Eating!
