Thanksgiving Eve is traditionally a big night out at the bar, but not so much this year with pandemic restrictions in place. However, since there’s no rule against home-based holiday debauchery (with no more than 10 of your closest friends and relations), Westchester Magazine has obtained an exclusive fall-themed cocktail recipe from The Blind Pig of Westchester, the hip, speakeasy-style bar in White Plains, where Ireland’s meticulous mixologists Daniel Cahill and James Brennan craft original, inventive cocktails with finely curated ingredients and laser-focused attention to detail. So, bottom’s up, cheers, and happy Thanksgiving!
