1Cranberry Pomegranate CiderFor Thanksgiving, don’t forget to include beverages on your menu! Since I don’t drink alcohol, I opted to create a seasonal virgin cider to enjoy and share with my family.

4Cranberry Pomegranate CiderThis recipe is a perfect balance of tart and sweet, and the hint of cinnamon and orange are what bring it all together. It tastes like a tea, and can be served warm or cold (if you chill it before serving), plus it is so easy to make!

Cranberry Pomegranate CiderThis Virgin Cranberry Pomegranate Cider was very impromptu! Yvonne and I had some leftover cranberries in the kitchen, so I worked my magic and came up with this simple recipe. I threw everything in a pot and had this cook as we prepared our other dishes in our Sweet Eclectic Kitchen Thanksgiving Series. This even can be used as a potpourri! It fills the house with beautiful scents that scream FALL and it definitely put me in the mood for some Thanksgiving cooking.
