This simple and festive cocktail is sure to be a hit on Thanksgiving straight on through New Years. It was recently featured in the World Market FUNsgiving post I did on their blog a few weeks back, and you can see it in it's entirety here. This drink is one I've been serving for years and everyone always asks for more. So I thought I'd share it with you. I'll be serving them tomorrow for all my guest. Now, the Champagne + Apple cider ratio is totally up to you. Ha!

I carved out mini white pumpkins to use and serve individually to my guest. I thought it would be fun and they turned out perfectly. Bake the same as directed above. They are sure to get a kick out of these. I mean, who doesn't love a mini? Am I right.
