This is a sponsored post from BlogHer and Welch's.
Is your family big on holiday traditions?
And I am fond of many of them, really.
Especially the ones we have on Thanksgiving. Christmas Eve is my number ONE favorite night of the year, but Thanksgiving is a close second. It has everything, really...family, fun, tradition and pumpkin pie.
We have simple tradition in my family: We only make pumpkin pie.
I. cannot. stand. it.
The recipe is straightforward. Take 2 liters of fizzy lemon-lime soda and dump a big bottle of Hawaiian Punch Concentrate into it.
Every year we beg her to make something else, but no...Thanksgiving is at her house, her recipe stands.
UNTIL THIS YEAR!
We are having Thanksgiving at my brothers.
AND GUESS WHO MANAGED TO PULL OFF GETTING THE DRINK ASSIGNMENT?! (I know, I know...I'm brilliant.)
I'm really excited to try something new, and as it happens, Welch's and BlogHer came around just in time to save my punch-making heiny for Thanksgiving. When I buy juice, it is almost ALWAYS Welch's and I love these recipes. Growing up in a non-drinking household, we buy Welch's sparkling juices a lot for holidays. All the fun fizz, without the alcohol. And I am grateful that there are so many options I can make and serve at the various family gatherings we have over the holidays.
