Christie Brinkley’s festive holiday drinks

Supermodel, author and entrepreneur Christie Brinkley brings excitement to planning Thanksgiving. “I love cooking in a group, getting everyone in the kitchen,” she says. “It’s all about making the people around you happy in very simple ways.” For her, one of those ways involves serving the exact right cocktails at each phase of the dinner.

Chrisite offers 3 easy drink recipes perfectly fitting for each course at her Thanksgiving gathering. First before dinner, an apple cider mimosa that she makes with her own Bellissima Prosecco and fresh apple cider, for dinner time she offers a delicate Elderflower gin cocktail, and for dessert a classic irish coffee with a fresh cinnamon stick garnish.

Christie says although this holiday may look different than ones in the past, it's no reason not to look for opportunities to make the holiday feel special, no matter how short the guest list.
