Featured Recipe - Thanks-tini (Official Thanksgiving Martini)

Thanks-tini (Official Thanksgiving Martini)
If you are a fan of the TV show How I Met Your Mother, then you remember the outrageous drink created by Barney Stinson to celebrate Thanksgiving. Barney had a flair for the original, and this one was special. It is Thanksgiving in a glass, and if you are feeling saucy, then add this one to your Thanksgiving spread!

We know what your thinking...Bouillon Cubes have no place in a cocktail! So, we decided to be the guinea pigs and try this recipe. It is surprisingly not that bad. It no doubt tastes like Thanksgiving in a glass. The Bouillon cube gives the drink an interesting hint of saltiness. We think it will compliment your turkey quite well this year. (But, don't blame us if some family members don't agree)



  • 1 Part Potato Vodka
  • 2 Parts Cranberry Juice
  • 1/4 Bouillon Cube
  • Cranberries for garnish


  • Combine Potato Vodka (Regular Vodka can be substituted- Potato just sounds more meal-like), Cranberry Juice, 1/4 Bouillon Cube in cocktail shaker and shake together until all ingredients are combined. Pour into chilled martini glass. Garnish with fresh cranberries.
  • Serve and enjoy, especially when you are missing Thanksgiving dinner!
