Holiday season is always a marathon. And it’s not even Thanksgiving yet and I felt out of breath. A to-do list later and a sea of Post-it notes later, I feel like I kinda sort maybe definitely have a handle on this holiday season. But before Thanksgiving, my birthday (!!) and Christmas, let’s not forget about another great holiday: Friendsgiving.
If your Friendsgiving is anything like the ones I’ve gone to, we always have a turkey, mashed potatoes (the unsung hero of Thanksgiving, in my humble opinion) and a plethora of desserts. If you are really into cooking, Friendsgiving can be your moment to shine and feel like a domestic goddess. If you are a bit wary of cooking, then be the rockstar who arrives with a big batch holiday cocktail. You will instantly become the most popular person in the room.
Secco prosecco at Trader Joe’s is a year-round favorite for me but you guys, Secco really steps up its game during the holidays with their cranberry prosecco. It’s pretty much the holiday spirit, all bubbly and crisp. For $5. Cranberry Secco is my default holiday date. You can see our well-documented love affair here.
When Trader Joe’s restocked Cranberry Secco last weekend, you bet your cranberries I went home with a bottle. Such self control. Does this mean I’m getting more mature??
I love my sangria with some fizz so Cranberry Secco is the obvious choice as a floater. If you don’t have a TJ’s near you, you can make a cranberry simple syrup and use regular prosecco for a similar taste! If you do have a TJ’s near you, stock up!!
