Thanksgiving cocktails with Stephanie Tyson, author of “Well, Shut My Mouth!”

With a name like Sweet Potato Fantasy, who could turn down this cocktail? It comes straight from Well, Shut My Mouth! The Sweet Potatoes Restaurant Cookbook, by Stephanie L. Tyson.

But don’t let the name fool you! There are no sweet potatoes in this drink–only the spirit of the soul food restaurant and a whole lotta goodness that’s perfect for an early appertif this Thursday. Cheers!

Sweet Potato Fantasy
Serves 1.

1 ounce Grey Goose vodka
¾ ounce black raspberry liqueur
1 ounce orange juice
2½ ounces champagne

Use a mixing cup to combine vodka, black raspberry liqueur, and orange juice. Shake well. Pour into a chilled 9-ounce martini glass and top with champagne.

We’ll catch back up with you next week! Happy Thanksgiving!
